About This Project
Caters News originally approached us to introduce new features to their Intranet and to fix a number of issues that had cropped up, while working on the Intranet thoughts turned to their existing site which they wanted to update both in terms of look and usability. As a news agency the focus is on their news stories and imagery whilst always making it easy for potential contributors to contact them to collaborate.
We proposed using WordPress to manage the site due to the ease of use for numbers members of staff that would often change so it needed to remain easy to mange with little or next to no training required. It also meant as the stories have a blog feel that it fit perfectly for their needs making the most of social sharing. A big part in launching the new site was seamlessly integrating the thousands of stories and images from their old site into WordPress, we created a custom plugin to handle this moving the copy and imagery into a new responsive template setup specifically for existing stories.
Being the main gateway for the agency online it was important that the look was modern and professional, we produced a responsive design that looks great on all devices and screen sizes and makes the videos and imagery the star and will still look good in years to come.
