DM Civil / Responsive CMS Website Design
As part of a major overhaul of their brand, DM Civil were looking to build a strong online presence. Along with a bold new identity and logo, new signage, stationery, photography, DM Civil needed a website that would reflect their market position, highlight their extensive capabilities and show they’re an employer of choice.
By combining some exciting photography, video production and engaging content we’ve been able to create a visually appealing design that’s brought life to what was previously a dry topic. The site uses bold colours and a flexible layout for maximum impact no matter how you’re browsing.
The site has been built to be accessible to a minimum WCAG 2.0 AA standard, making it accessible to all users, no matter the device capability, technical restrictions/missing plugins, or users with impairments or disability.
One of the major considerations was that the site had to be responsive, so we created a full responsive mobile-first layout that complemented DM Civil's new brand. To make the site truly responsive, we integrated not one by two responsive image loading systems that dynamically load the effect size for the browser. The result? An excellent visual experience, reduced load times and overall better user experience.
The site is rich with information about their capabilities and processes, successful projects with some of WA’s largest organisations, and dynamic images of the DM Civil team in action (usually on towering trenching machines!). The rebrand showcases both internally to their team and externally to existing loyal clients the progressive direction that the business is taking, helping to evolve and grow DM Civil.
At DM Civil, we previously believed that providing an outstanding service and getting the job done was all the business marketing we needed. It took partnering with Design City for us to have our minds opened to the fact that we had such a great story to tell and the benefits this would bring. The birth of a complete company rebranding was the result and the creativity, project management and professionalism of the entire Design City team was unsurpassed. Our company look, online presence and marketing material is now cutting edge and we are sure it will bring significant business opportunities into the future.
Outstanding results come from good collaborative partnerships. I feel our new marketing presence is a true example of this and I have no hesitation in recommending Design City to any future clients.
