OWDT’s Solution

One of our most ambitious projects to date, OWDT worked closely with MM management to create a sharper, much-improved brand identity. After determining the site’s architecture and navigation, our visual design team developed a sophisticated industrial-style design with seamless, intuitive interfaces. Navigation was enhanced by a reduced set of logical filters, allowing users to more easily find the right product to match their precise needs.

In addition

  • We began with a strong measurement plan based on stakeholder goals revealed in our discovery process.
  • High on our agenda was restructuring the site with three portals to allow easy access for their three primary audiences: professional fence contractors, architects and building material retailers.
  • Finally, along with sophisticated design elements with much-improved navigation, we provided crisp new written content to highlight the company’s prominence and facilitate its expansion into new market segments.
