It has been said that one human year equals at least four internet years. So it doesn’t take long for a website to start looking a bit outdated.
Let’s make this ‘throwback Thursday’ and think about the kind of clothes we wore in the 90’s. That wasn’t all that long ago and don’t lie to yourself; you thought you looked cool.
And for the 90’s, you probably did. But digging out those photos these days makes you cringe; you’d never wear anything like that now.
And websites are just the same. Let’s face it; the world isn’t going digital. It’s already there.
One of our clients nailed it recently when he said ‘Our website is our second shop window. It needs to give our customers everything we could in person.’ And he’s absolutely right. Your website is a reflection of your business and it needs to make a good first impression.
So for a change, we want to blow our own trumpet a bit. Over the past couple of years we have been designing and building more and more great websites and the latest site we’ve added to our books is one for Artists Studio. Set up in 2009, they have become one of the highest profile bespoke drama companies in the UK. Their most recent and current production project has been for ‘The Fall’, starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan. When it first aired last year, ‘The Fall’ was BBC Two’s biggest drama series to launch in eight years with an average audience of 3.5 million.
The drama returns to BBC Two soon and with such a high profile project, Artists Studio felt their previous site just didn’t reflect the way they wanted to present themselves.
So we’ve just finished a website that truly shows them off, whilst keeping things simple as required.
We needed a strong focus on ‘The Fall’ but with scope to grow the site and develop the pages for the other projects as they move further along the production process. The end result is a future-proofed site that’s visually striking, clear and informative. It’s a true reflection of Artists Studio as a company. Oh, and a happy client!
Here’s the before and after shots:
