As seen on BBC - Monty Halls new website goes live

14th June 2012 @ 6:40am

As seen on BBC - Monty Halls new website goes liveA well known BBC TV presenter, marine biologist, ex-marine, travel writer, public speaker and diver, Monty Halls already had an impressive CV. Then he and his team decided to open a shop in Dartmouth, South Devon offering wildlife trips and diving courses to locals and visitors, with a chance to buy Monty merchandise and meet Monty and Reubs.

With all this in mind, Formoda were approached to create a new brand for Monty Halls Great Escapes, which also led to a new brand for Monty himself and subsequent brochures, signage, leaflets and of course, the website.

The most important thing about the new website was to ensure that it was easy to update using Formoda's fabulous website content management system, as Monty's busy life, TV schedule, public speaking events, and regular trips and courses mean that the website information needs to be up to date and current.

The new website covers a lot of information:

  • Monty's TV series
  • Monty Halls merchandise
  • the team's Corporate Traning packages
  • wildlife and diving trips - check out the shark diving course to South Africa in November!
  • details about the Monty Halls team
  • upcoming events and courses
  • lots of great photos

The new website has gone down really well with Monty's band of loyal fans, the only slight complaint is that there might need to be more pictures of Reuben! Monty, Tam and Suze who have been doing most of the website updating have found it really easy to do and like many of our clients, are finding it much more fun than previous websites they have had to update and will be adding more of Reubs to keep everyone happy. Monty loves the new website and said it all when he said "It's the dog danglies."

To see what all the fuss is about, please visit the new Monty Halls website. You might want to book a fun and fascinating wildlife trip on Monty's rib (Simon has been and can highly recommend it) or you could be more daring and find yourself swimming with the sharks in South Africa in November.
