Designing and developing a website for a unique chess set made from pieces of a medieval castle was one of the most exciting projects I’ve had the pleasure to undertake. Meeting the project’s creator and the representative from “ZAMEK” Sp. z o.o. (the company managing the castle ruins) at Ogrodzieniec Castle added a valuable layer to the design process. The goal was clear: immerse myself in the castle’s atmosphere to create a website that perfectly echoed the spirit of this extraordinary endeavour.
The Case Study (mobile friendly business website)
Our discussions spanned an entire day, delving into the nuances of presenting the story behind the chess set to attract potential buyers with its medieval charm. That day I received the first set of media files, and initiated the design process. Within a week, the representative received a link to a fully functional homepage. While pleased with the general look, the client’s keen eye for detail led to numerous refinements, a process I value working through with perfectionists who have a clear vision.
We spent dozens of hours on video-calls discussing different aspects of the website, such as showcasing each chess piece and the board, presenting the project’s narrative, and incorporating a news section for project-related articles. After about two months of perfecting all the details, the website was ready for the public. Unfortunately, a change in administration priorities occurred shortly after the launch, and the project took a back seat. Nevertheless, as far as I know, the unique chess set is still available for purchase, if you’re interested 😉
