Business Challenge

This project was all about making it work, wonderfully. 

What was the criteria? A fast turn around, frictionless adoption by the team, and wonderfully Bruntwood Works design aesthetic.

We worked closely with Bruntwood Works to define what their marketing team needed to make the multiple Bruntwood Works websites a success for both external-facing messaging and internal management.

Four times the fun

This project encompassed a network of microsites, each promoting the Works as a whole, or an individual site.

To keep Bruntwood Works working wonderfully, we provided a uniform and integrated content editing experience across the sites. We also worked closely with their Marketing team to ensure the sites would hold unique URLs and content that wouldn’t negatively impact SEO through duplication.

Umbraco Uno

A pioneering project for Bruntwood Works, we thought it only natural to bring in Umbraco’s latest pioneering software, Umbraco Uno. A Saas framework offering flexible components, enabling us to focus on promoting usability for the Bruntwood Works team.

Bruntwood design

Design is more than colours, font, and a few images. It’s the atmosphere they create when put together. We created a living design system and recreated Bruntwood Work’s energy on the new microsites.

Easy integration adoption

Now in full control of their site content, we wanted to make the site a marketing power tool, fully-integrated with their CRM, Pardot by Salesforce.

We also configured the site to host powerful 3D tour embeds from Matterport without impacting performance.
