DPJ Build may be leading the way in terms of quality and affordability, a fact that secured the award-winning building company an enviable reputation throughout the North East with both domestic and commercial clients, but like any well-respected, longstanding organisation, there’s no harm in harnessing a little makeover magic.
This isn’t the first time we’ve encountered DPJ Build, we are extremely proud to have designed the company’s logo and branding – the original designs are still used to this day – and to have built DPJ Build’s very first website back in 2012. Back then the brief was to help the DPJ Build team make the most of the opportunities available online throughout their industry by generating enquiries, raising brand awareness and growing the wider business. Now with an already established and growing client base, DPJ Build is back with a brand new brief that they hope will expand their reach further.
Responsive and relevant
Despite the company loving the original website we developed for them all those years ago, unfortunately the website wasn’t responsive. In the five years that have passed, things have also changed for the business too, and the previous website simply did not reflect the business as it stands today.
With a brief to breathe some life into their online presence, we of course couldn’t wait to get cracking with creating an online platform that was oh so them.
Showcasing their journey
As we’ve worked with the owners in the past, they trusted that our design team would come up with something that would hit the spot. Their only request during briefing was that we use the current logo and colour scheme, giving our web design team creative reign over the entire project.
We knew that as an award winning company, the DPJ Build website should be equally as first class. Our website designers got to work creating a concept that was strong in design and reflected the company’s ethos for standing out from their competition. We decided to go big, fresh and modern with the site and utilised blocks of strong colour and full size images to really showcase their work. We also included all of the modern design features you would expect such as sticky navigation, simple navigational structure, a carousel of client testimonials, and highly visible contact details and call to action buttons throughout which will lead to increased conversions. During the development phase, we also wanted to ensure that the client could take full control of their website, even after our work was done, that’s why we developed the site in WordPress, a framework which would allow the DPJ Build team to update their gallery and customise other features independently.
The big reveal
The redesign of the DPJ Build website was delivered ahead of schedule and on budget, and we are pleased to report that we fulfilled the brief communicated to us and more. The client is absolutely thrilled with his new website and despite only launching recently has already had some fantastic feedback about dpjbuild.co.uk.
