CASE STUDY

AH Blackmore

Management Consulting

01WHO THEY ARE

About The client

AH Blackmore are an agile consulting start-up who work with companies and private equity at the manufacturing and assembly floor level to achieve breakthrough results. Based in Chicago, Illinois, they help companies deliver operational results through sustainable continuous improvement tools, systems and routines across the US.

01Requirements

What they needed

AH Blackmore needed a business website that would help them scale and enter the next level as a company. The site's branding had to be connected with the founder's personal brand which is based on trust, but it also needed to present a more corporate and established look & feel.

Our Approach

HOW WE APPROACHED IT

The steps we took to bring their vision to life.

01Step One

GET TO KNOW THEIR BUSINESS

First, we conducted meetings to better understand their services and business model. We brainstormed, discussed and shared ideas on how to best approach the project.

02Step Two

UNDERSTAND THEIR BRAND VISION

Then, we dove into their brand. We prepared custom questionnaires to help us better understand what they want the website to convey and the feelings they want it to inspire in potential clients.

03Step Three

AGREE ON SITE STRUCTURE

Once we have a full understanding of their brand, it's time to get into specifics. We discuss the website's structure, navigation, as well as preference regarding the site content, layout, components and flow.

THE ART OF DESIGN

DESIGN PHASE

“Make it simple, but significant.”

01Static Image

With all information in place, it was time to start crafting the initial design. Graphic Artists, UX Specialists and Web Designers worked together to prepare a completely custom design prototype. (PNG Image)

02Custom Animation

Video Prototype

As part of our presentation, we also prepared a custom video animation of the static design prototype. The purpose is to show the client what the design would look like on a live website, with animations and scrolling.

03ALL IN ONE PLACE

INITIAL PRESENTATION

Finally, we put everything in a succinct presentation designed to give the client a complete understanding of our proposed design. At this point, we started revisions and adjustments, until full approval.

April Blackmore

Founder at AH Blackmore

City Tech Design has become valued partner to my business. While my website was in development the team was able to walk me through the process step by step as they built my website and were patient with me.

They were very thoughtful in developing my logo, the flow of the website, even the colors picked were a reflection of my business and it is easy for the customer to get to know me on the web. I could not be more proud of what City Tech built as my website is it is a true reflection of my business.
