The Project

Bringing together a disparate set of website requirements into a single global solution which can meet the different needs of each individual market, minimising the administrative overheads and providing flexibility to manage their digital estate “in-house”.

The new global website needed to embody their premium proposition, showcasing their extensive product portfolio and articulating their brand experience. A key challenge of the project was taking a physical showroom experience and translating it online. Providing users with the same rich and immersive experience and helpful resources, enabling them to find the right product for them, without needing to leave the house/office.

Creating an efficient, simple and tailored user experience across the Havwoods website was a critical requirement. Catering for a global audience across a range of industries meant that existing inconsistencies across Havwoods product and branded content needed to be addressed.
