Approaching their 50th year in business the South Wales based property management company Parkmans came to us to bring their website up to date with a fully professional make-over and better accessibility. After discussing the needs with Charlotte of both potential customers and staff at Parkmans we commissioned a full range of photography and designed a brand new, fully bespoke site that fit perfectly with Parkmans' existing catalogue of information.
A cause for celebration
Priding themselves on a full half century of business in Caerphilly, Blackwood and Abercarn, Parkmans are seen as an important business within the Cardiff and the valleys of South Wales. We commissioned a celebratory set of photographs of landmarks around the valleys along with images of the types of properties they deal with on a day to day basis.
Along with specially branded cars we had shots of the team all used to build up the image of a helpful, family-owned company with a fully experienced team.
The new site conveyed Parkmans' sense of being a local company and part of the community
The site and all its search abilities were made with mobile search in mind
Behind the scenes
Aside from the visual improvements the Parkmans website had to work with the full back end of data with an easy to use cataloguing system for the Parkmans staff to pick up with ease. This is where our friends at Amity Web Solutions came in with an extentive content management system that allowed for easy entry of information and brought over the previous catalogue seemlessly.
For other users of the site – namely the customers or casual viewers – the design required an easily searchable database and simple to use user interface. Including site that worked responsively and just as well on mobile we ensured the entire experience was well put together.
As part of the site redesign we arranged for professional photographs of each of the team members
