New Leaf Solicitors
We were approached by New Leaf Solicitors to make some changes to their website which we created for them previously. They felt like it needed refreshing and tweaking to look up to date with the current industry trends!
Their previous site was working for them at the time. It met the industry standard having fixed width. Utilising the Revolution sliders at the top of the web page to create a carousel of images and text for the user to view or click through to the relevant section! It was a clear and concise site!
Issues highlighted with the old site:
Fresh stock photography – Moving away from images that you can tell are stock!
Update meta tags for SEO.
Improve the user experience.
Structure content in a better format
New Designed Website
The website has now been updated with a wide array of small functional changes and some major style changes also!
Bye bye to the Revolution slider. This has been replaced by a full-width updated image with a small specific value statement. Full-width imagery is part of today’s trends in web design, this change was also made possible by removing the fixed positioning and replacing it with full-width panelled pages!
Revolution sliders have been removed as users aren’t spending the time to watch through all images and after the first or second image, they are scrolling down to search for more content and therefore no longer paying attention to the image carousel!
Content has been updated and typography changed. Made more modern utilising a san serif style font.
Small incremental changes to functionality such as moving a certain call to action into a better position on the web page for ease of use!
