STRANG Website Redesign
Situation Despite an abundance of beautiful imagery showcasing their award-winning designs, Strang’s previous website still pulled up short. The Strang marketing team knew they needed a new site that would showcase their creativity, exceptional work, and unique organizational culture through more modern, bold web design that better reflected their brand. Strang found the design skills, WordPress expertise, and holistic project approach they were looking for at Northwoods.
Solution - Using a data-centric approach focused on how users search for information, Northwoods digital marketing experts crafted a digital strategy to guide the website redesign. - The result was a new site featuring modern, interactive design with lots of movement – including rotating text, image sliders, and hovers – and a strong, intuitive user experience (UX) to accentuate Strang’s stunning imagery and to better engage site visitors. - The new design also reflected Strang’s entire marketing support program, carrying the brand through from the traditional to the web for a fully integrated experience. - Northwoods’ WordPress expertise made the implementation of the design, site launch, and ongoing maintenance seamless for the Strang team.
Outcome - The American Advertising Federation in Madison, Wis., recognized Strang’s new website with a 2019 Gold ADDY award in the Online/ Interactive – Websites – B-to-B category. - A Gold ADDY is the highest level of recognition of creative excellence and is judged to be superior to all other entries in a given category. - Since Strang’s new site launched, visits have increased by 6,150% and average page load speed has decreased by 56%, pointing to an improved user experience.
