Today is our first official day as members of our favorite co-working space, Strongbox West. We’ll be here at least once a week, so if you’re in the area, stop by and say hello!
We launched the seventh iteration of 45royale in September of last year. It was a complete and exhaustive re-think of our branding, positioning, and culture. Over the past year we’ve made subtle improvements, but for the majority of those 12 months, we’ve had our heads down working on some exciting client projects. We’ve been lucky enough to welcome some great new clients to the 45royale family, so we thought it would be a good time to update our Work page. We liked the look of our previous design, but we found there were several shortcomings. We decided to implement a few ideas we had that would make this page more functional and easier to use. Here’s what we came up with:
Easier at a glance
We’ve stream-lined the page immensely. We are showcasing eight case studies that give a more complete view of the client’s needs and how we helped them achieve their goals. We’ve also made it easier to view the work individually. Once you click on a case study, simply use the navigation arrows at the top or bottom of the page to move to the next project. We think this will allow a more immersive and thorough experience as you view our work.
We don’t want to toot our own horn, but we’ve gotten some amazing compliments and testimonials over the years. What better way to explain what we do and how we work than straight from the client’s mouth.
Brands on brands on brands
We’ve done work for clients of all shapes and sizes over the years. It was important for us to let potential clients know that our small team has the chops to work with anyone.
We wanted to take this time to say thank you to our wonderful clients for allowing us to improve, create, and learn together. Without their trust, this body of work is simply not possible. And if you like what you see and think we could help you improve your web experience, please don’t hesitate to get in touch—we’re always on the look out for exciting new projects and opportunities.
Today we have the pleasure of introducing Exposure, our latest premium Tumblr theme. Exposure is beautiful way for you to show off your photography.
