Carlson McCain, a full-service consulting firm specializing in environmental, engineering and land surveying services, needed Windmill Design to revamp their website design to increase effectiveness, professionalism and appeal of the firm to potential new hires.
To accomplish this goal, Windmill Design created an engaging homepage animation that visually tells the compelling story of the rich history and broad services of the firm through photography and typography. The homepage showcases fresh content through a news and announcements section and a “from the field” section that utilizes blog functionality, but without the pressure to always be updating a blog. This section tells the more in-depth stories of how Carlson McCain makes a difference in the way that they approach projects, with both potential clients and potential employees as the intended reader. A predictive-typing people search page allows clients to easily find contact information for their team. Windmill designed the entire site with a dynamic mini-header navigation bar that stays with the user the entire time they scroll—making site navigation easy and intuitive. Overall, Windmill redesigned the Carlson McCain website to create a visually appealing site that’s easy to navigate and find relevant information.
