Once again working with Vantage Airport Group (through the LaGuardia Gateway Partners), we designed and developed a website that is clean and beautiful with all the expected functionality of an airport website. As with all of our sites, this one is responsive, but transforms into an app-like experience on a phone, making the step of downloading a separate app unnecessary.
The particular challenge with this project was dealing with all of the parties involved: LaGuardia Gateway Partners, the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey and the late addition of the Governor of New York. We managed to navigate our way through these parties by designing a website that is simple and timeless; and that keeps the end-user in mind by making commonly-used tools available within a click or two.
