Cortez Subsea appointed us to design a new website for them after seeing some of the cutting edge web and design work we had previously completed for other clients. Cortez are providers of pioneering technology to the subsea Oil & Gas industry. The company pride themselves on being able to offer alternative solutions to traditional pipeline methodologies, so it was vital that their website reflected the company’s innovation and individuality.
When we undertook our research, we recognised that Cortez had a wide range of devices and services, and as such the site needed to provide different layers of information without overwhelming the user. Our designers used accordion menus, downloads and lots of icons to guide the user to the information they required at their own pace.
Our developers made the site responsive to make it readily accessible and user friendly across multiple platforms (Smartphones, Tablets, PCs).Visually, we used an animated wave background on the home page and internal pages to set the tone of the site, along with some professional photography supplied by the client, to bring the site alive. Furthermore our designers used bold, contrasting colours to make the images, branding and text jump out at the reader. A blog was also added to allow the client to deliver their stories, values and personality of Cortez Subsea, as well as drive users to the site via social media and search engine searches.
