Collier Webb – Design and Development
I was approached by Collier Webb, a bespoke handcrafted lighting and furniture company, as they were looking for help with their old site that was not only hard to navigate but also difficult to update. I was tasked to design a site with a more modern, fresh clean style that more clearly reflected the high quality product that their company produced whilst also helping customers easily find the information they were seeking.
The one thing that struck me about their old site was the great quality images that they had but weren’t really utilising so I worked to use these to sell the idea that they were a high end company creating quality products. Though not an ecommerce site they did want to display products in a way that allowed users to easily catalogue their favourite pieces, print downloadable spec sheets, navigate between different categories and easily see what finishes and product details were available.
With a simple grid layout with easy to access navigation at all times, I created a site that allowed for a more streamlined user journey. The design style reflected the classic style of their branding, using their teal colour as accents throughout, paired with a clean simple sans serif font.
To create a site that would be easy for their team to add new products to without my help I created a custom theme for wordpress. Using a number of different jquery plugins I created a site that was not only fresh and clean but also had elements that helped create interest such as spinning colour wheels and pdf generators.
This site was live until early 2019.
