Novamedia was asked to re-design their site and the brief was to produce a clean, professional design consistent with the M&F branding guidelines. There was also a requirement for several sections of the site to be dynamic so that staff at M&F can update the site in-house and ensure that the most relevant and current information is available to the end-user. The resulting site reflects the impactful M&F branding but is not restricted by it and allows non-technical staff a great deal of freedom in terms of controlling the content.
To give M&F staff this flexibility the site is supported by a custom-built admin module which provides control over elements on the following site sections:
In 2014, Novamedia rebuilt the site making it responsive, whilst keeping the design and layout for large screen sizes much the same. We achieved this using the Zurb Foundation responsive framework. Munro & Forster now has a website which perfectly aligns with the agency's brand guidelines, and works on all devices, whatever their size.
Another major aspect of the new site is the addition of a blog. We initially implemented a WordPress blog system for M&F but it was decided in 2013 that this was not working as well as the rest of the back-end functionality that we had custom-built. So we scrapped this and started again, integrating the blog functionality into the rest of the admin module. This has made it much easier to manage as all parts of the site are now controlled under one admin system. It also allowed us the flexibility to link the blog section to the team page, allowing site users to more easily find blog posts written by various members of the M&F team.
Novamedia scores top marks for service: totally reliable and 110% committed to getting the job done. We’ve worked with Dave and his team for over 10 years and he is our most trusted supplier.
