CETCO Web Design

The challenge

Despite their many successes and comprehensive platinum services, CETCO’s old website was completely lackluster and difficult to navigate. Access to their Contact Information Page, for example, was slow and counterintuitive. In addition, the text was small and difficult to read. This was causing them to lose potential customers.

An impressively elegant and functional website

The new site is visually stunning, with 13 beautifully rendered jewel-tone icons that serve as portals for the company’s 13 different services. Site navigation is now lighting fast with multiple, clear links to all site pages. Video, graphic and other media integrate seamlessly to maximize visual appeal and functionality throughout the sites different levels. Because their clients are high-level industry decision makers, it was critical that they be impressed not only with the site’s design and ease of use, but also by the professional excellence of CETCO’s brand identity, a goal we fully accomplished. Finally, we created a detailed, yet easy-to-use contact form, which makes client input virtually effortless.
