Portfolio Web Design and Brand Evolution for Howarth Litchfield Architects

Howarth Litchfield are one of the largest and most respected independent architect firms in the North East. With an array of awards they also fairly unique with their service range including interiors and surveying.

Having been a client for many years, hosting their website plus support and SEO strategy they asked us to help them refresh the company brand and redesign the portfolio site we’d created for them in 2011.

We evolved and developed new branding which reflects with integrity the firms modern forward thinking, whilst projecting their important heritage connection with a dignified balance.

The new website is based solidly around showing their portfolio images to best effect, now much larger than the original site. Photography takes centre stage throughout the site from the home through to people, each section has its own identity whilst integral to the brand message.

With a fully responsive framework and our E3WP CMS the site is fully optimised and on its way to rank high for local and national searches with an ongoing search optimisation & marketing strategy.

Also designed seamlessly along side the website were stationary and brochure style fold out leaflets along with tabbed pitching folders with outer sleeves.

We continue to work with HL driving targeted traffic to the site with ongoing monthly Search Engine Optimisations & Marketing which has seen HowarthLitchfield.com reach the top spot on Google for ‘Architects Durham’ and first page for ‘Architects North East’ consistently.
