What was the scope of their involvement?
Our original site was built on Drupal, but we decided we wanted to move to WordPress to have more flexibility in the things we could do. We worked with LINK on a complete overhaul and migration from Drupal to WordPress backend. It came with a total redesign, and we added a bunch of new features as well. Their work was strictly design and development.
First and foremost, our site is a place to feature the services we provide, so there are several pages dedicated to describing our services. Those were straight-up text pages, but we wanted a very particular look and feel. LINK designed what the overall page flow should look like, from the header to the footer. We wanted a dynamic header on the home page, so they worked out something that scrolls up as you move down the page.
There were also some dynamic features on the services pages. They designed custom icons to represent those services. They also designed a way to present an excerpt of our case studies upfront, which then lets the user click through to the content.
We wanted a timeline of the company’s progress on our ‘About’ page. They also customized a parallax element that had been on our previous site, making it more subtle. They customized the blog to our specifications, allowing posts to be attributed to multiple authors.
On the ‘Careers’ page, we had a big wish list for the way we wanted the information presented and how potential applicants could submit resumes. They worked through this with us in a systematic way. They accomplished everything we asked for in a way that went beyond our ability to imagine from a design perspective.
We’ve commissioned them to create custom icons we use in marketing materials. We really like the look and feel they created for us, so some of their work carries into our print materials as well.
How did you come to work with LINK Creative?
We’ve been working with LINK since before I was hired, so I can’t comment on that process.
How much have you invested with LINK Creative?
This project was in the $10,000-50,000 range.
What is the status of this engagement?
The redesign project started in June of 2015 and was finished in October of that year. We keep going back to LINK for website updates and custom design work.
