During the development of Canal Walk's website, our Virtual Designs' team worked alongside Creative Spark in order to design a website that's quality matched South Africa's biggest shopping mall.
Canal Walk required a website that would be attractive, modern, multi-faceted and responsive to fit the screen of any device used to browse from. We proceeded to develop the site and admin suite using Laravel, a web application framework that can accommodate many advanced concepts and installations using some of the latest technology and October, a CMS (content management system). As a large shopping centre with over 400 stores, the Canal Walk website is able to quickly filter searches for restaurants, stores and entertainment and even incorporates a Nu Metro API feed that displays the latest movies playing at Canal Walk.
Utilizing a CMS like October on Laravel was perfect for Canal Walk's site, as their team need access to regularly update the various web pages with the latest competitions, events and news. The website also features a blog section that is divided into categories, keeping their clients and web page visitors up to date. Additional website features include activated social media links, user-friendly contact forms and newsletter subscription facilities.
