Hosking Interiors

Award Category 
Drupal Version 
Brief Overview 

At 108 degrees, we build sites whose first goal is successful marketing, brand positioning and communication to the audience. A 'pretty' site, is always the secondary goal... although one we do strive for. Hosking Interiors REQUIRED a pretty site, but in addition one that would successfully position the business as the industry leader it is and reflect the quality of their work in a way that words could not describe.

The result is a site that has brought in new business, encouraged more work from the designer's current clients and built an online reputation for the designer that equates to the quality of her work in person.

Why Drupal Was Chosen 
Hosking Interiors needed a site that would showcase the beauty of the designer's work, while providing an efficient, usable, customizable solution that was unique for her industry. Drupal offered an affordable development alternative that would give her brand strong visual appeal, allow for quick customization and be a usable interface for a user base with limited technical background.
Describe the Project (Goals, Requirements, and Outcome) 

The designer is known for being one of the most successful interior designers and real estate stagers in southern NH. With her unique style, she sets a tone that makes a home desirable to any buyer that walks through the doors. She sought a site that would help to reflect her work and bring focus to it, not be a distraction from it.

108 degrees used Drupal 6 to create a site that wows the visitor, entices the home seller and hooks the real estate agent looking for professional staging. With social media integration, a blog that is easy to use and styled for visual interest, this site brings the owner's online reputation in line with her work as it appears in person.
