The Approach

We produced for Gratte Brothers a modern and engaging website that provides clear information on their expertise, as well as focusing on the personal and human approach they pride themselves on, both with clients and their 650 staff across the country. In addition to the design and development of the website, we art directed photoshoots at Gratte Brothers HQ, large scale construction sites, and restaurant fit-outs. The concept behind the photo shoots was to humanise the company, setting up more lifestyle type images featuring human faces, smiling and aspirational poses. We then added these to custom carousels that changed between slides using 5 different split panels to make up the image, giving a nod towards the mechanical nature of the business. This large website featured detailed services pages, project case studies, team culture and interview pages, plus job vacancies and a job application functionality.
