The challenge was to update their existing website which was built using Flash technology which meant many visitors and all iPad users couldn’t access the site. After our initial pitch, we succeeded in winning two further rounds of a competitive tender process, and succeeded in winning the business. We were instructed to design and build their new corporate website, featuring two interactive platforms including a worldwide interactive map. The site has been designed with accessibility in mind, and is built on a future proof platform to allow for the seamless integration of video and animation.
We employed the skills of our in house photographer: Algy Brinton. Algy travelled to multiple locations to capture the essence of the company and its operations. The tour included four locations in Greence, and then further shoots in Germany, Hungary, Austria and Bulgaria.
Working closely with multiple departments we designed a site that pays tribute to this companies’ proud heritage, while showcasing the modern technology and processes employed in delivering their mineral solutions. The challenge was to deliver a site that was relevant to the varying target audiences while focussing on their commitment to their customers. A central theme to this work was S&B’s own tagline “From Market to Mine” which demonstrates their brands commitment to providing speciality products for specific applications from heavy industry to agriculture.
