FLEX, San Jose / FLEX / 2017
Much like the environmental slogan, we approached the website redesign with the concept of “reduce, reuse, recycle.” Our company had thousands of pages of valuable content that lived everywhere except for our website. So we gathered it, reviewed it, mapped it to themes, implemented it in our new pages and actively found ways to cross-promote it. At the same time, we eliminated redundancies to deliver a streamlined narrative that unfolds throughout the site.
