HB 2017 New Website

2017

Introducing the New HB site

For early 2017, Wests were tasked with updating the current HB website that we had previously developed for them. It needed updating to bring some new life to the site and to visually display their unique range of products in the best way possible. Wests updated the navigation throughout the site and made adjustments to the other areas, to make the overall images larger on the screen, to show the HB products rendered by Wests better than ever before. These changes were also applied across all desktop, mobile and tablet devices.

View the updated live site at: www.hudsonandbroad.com

Champalimaud Instagram Feed

2017

Champalimaud Instagram Feed Section

During the first quarter of 2017, Champalimaud's following across all areas of social media had increased. To coincide with this success, they requested a way to link the website to these accounts on desktop, tablet and mobile view.

We put forward the idea of implementing their Instagram as a live feed into the website, along with a complementary footer to house links to other social media accounts. After various mockups to perfect the designs, we went live in March 2017.

See the full implementation of the Instagram feed here: www.champalimauddesign.com

Goldsmith 2016 December Market

Wests Launch Moving Image Area

2016

Wests Launch Moving Image Area

There's a widely held belief about the use of moving images and video for advertising and promotion. It's a belief that says you've got around 50 seconds to get in, hold the attention, and get out. It's a belief that's also tied to the cost of producing longer form moving images. It's a belief which we take on board, but are delighted to subvert.

We've created a brand new moving image area on the website, which showcases our approach via a range of clients and projects.
