About this project
I was approached by Donegal Treasurer Cieran Kelly to originally create a separate supporters site for Donegal GAA but once him and the county board seen the design they wanted me to re-design their old site as well. The site was very large and required listing of fixtures and results.
I began my process by reviewing the analytics of the old site and seeing which pages were popular and which ones were not. it became apparent very quick that the Fixtures and Results page accounted for over 90% of web traffic to the site.
Being an avid Donegal Fan I always found the way the fixtures and results listed on the old site confusing to navigate so I researched other counties in Ireland on how they accomplished it and came up with an easy and fast solution.
I also wanted to give more information on the teams as another thing I Found that it was extremely hard to find team pictures of all teams online.
An E-Commerce solution, base on wordpress was also added to the site in order for the County to sell fundraising products, including a Donegal Car Sticker I created.
The site launched in April 2018 in time for the championships. The site received lots of positive feedback on the new fixtures and results system I created. The sites visits and length users stay on for has increased by 30% from this time last year and the car stickers are selling well.
