A New Christmas In Charleston Website, Just In Time For Christmas
This year, we were excited to work our friends at the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau to give ChristmasInCharleston.com a shiny new look.
Those who have been to the site in years past will recognize some of the same core content features such as events, where you can keep up with all of the holiday shin digs around town, special holiday packages and tours pages and a gifts page highlighting Charleston-inspired gifting ideas.
New to the site is beautiful video shot by Adam Boozer, a spruced up advent calendar, a collection of holiday-related blogs and an interactive map. Put on some Christmas music, maybe make yourself a hot chocolate and we’ll dive into the features of the Christmas In Charleston website.
We loved the footage from Adam so Nic wanted to design the site in a way that we could feature it prominently. Doesn’t that just put you in the Christmas spirit already?
This Gifting Page allows for users to easily sort gifting options – check out that sleek transition between categories.
The Trimmings Page is a new component of the website. Our friends at the CACVB were already producing so much great content over on the Explore Charleston website related to the holidays so we wanted to give that content a home on the Christmas In Charleston site as well.
Around Town Page
Perhaps the coolest part of the site is the Around Town Page. For the first time, the CACVB was involved in decorating King Street for Christmas. Each decoration and banner is inspired by the 12 Days of Christmas, but with a little Charleston twist. The meaning behind each is so special so we wanted a neat way to display that on the site. Nic and Tyler worked on the design and Ansley brought the whole map to life in a fun and interactive way.
Merry Christmas (In Charleston) everyone!
