In December 2014, Tarpey Woodfine one of the most respected and high profile architects in the country approached SO Marketing to replace their out of date website with one that properly showcases the kind of work that they do. As the client is in a very similar business to ourselves, that of offering a design service, it was a project that we had great affinity with right from the early days. The main aim of the project was to create a showcase of some of the amazing projects that the client had worked on over the past few years and allow for expansion in categories as time goes on.
About the Client
Tarpey Woodfine Architects have a friendly and approachable team of highly qualified, talented and ambitious staff who are passionate about design quality, sustainability, technical detailing and keeping current with new developments, products and legislation in the profession. Being members of various professional associations such as RIBA and ARB, they are also listed on the Architects Accredited in Building Conservation register. All of this means that they are recognised for knowledge, experience and care of historic and listed buildings. Like ourselves, Tarpey Woodfine are award winning including winning The North Staffordshire Architecture and Urban Design Award for their contribution to the local townscape.
Following on-site meetings with the client, we reviewed the kind of images and portfolio that the client wished to share with the world. The photography was broken down into photos, and renders of developments, and the idea was made to create a storyboard kind of approach that allowed users to drag through the portfolio with mouse, or touch on mobile devices, and at the end of seeing the work, find out some information about the project in detail. We created a bespoke website with fully content managed admin system to allow the client to add and manage new projects, menus and pages and expand the website going forwards.
