Thompson Flanagan contacted Comrade Web Agency to create a customized, full-spectrum, redesign of their website. Essentially, they needed a visual rebranding to reflect their culture and work ethic.
We decided to go with a simple but effective design. Sometimes, while on the creative path, you realize that the more straight-forward designs work best to convey certain messages. With Thompson Flanagan, we did just that.
A clean, crisp, and easy to look at design was chosen for the website: a predominantly white background complemented by bold green, grey, and black. We also added a timeline to capture the company’s 10 plus year journey as well. We then hired a photographer to take customized shots of downtown Chicago; an urban landscape is the perfect modern backdrop for company like this.
The idea for the visuals was simple, but the overall functionality and flow of the website was anything but. To the naked eye, there is a clear splash page companied by interior pages. However, in creating the full design, we opted for a custom, responsive WordPress website. We utilized a modular, block design, which allowed us the ability to rearrange the pages seamlessly if needed.
Putting this together was no easy feat. Finding the right design to reflect the company’s persona, getting the best photography, and piecing it all together took time and patience. We are glad that Thompson Flanagan had both, and in the end these traits help secure the long-term success of both parties.
