Creation of an elegant online presence

01 Intro

Less is more – Focus on high-quality design and content

For the overall redesign of the ARCONDIS corporate website, we focused on high-quality content and how it is presented. Our goal was to create an online presence that is much lighter and more high-end. As the previous website had a deep site structure with many subsites, content, and several elements, we commenced with a WONDROUS exploration phase to identify and understand the stakeholders and their needs and pain points, the key requirements, followed by the design phase and finally the implementation of the new solution:

  • Analyze the business requirements

  • Create Personas and user journeys

  • Preparation, hosting and evaluation of interviews 

  • Content workshop to clean up the sitemap and the whole structure

  • Develop information architecture and deduce technical requirements

  • Create wireframes and a design vision

  • Develop the MVP of the new website 

  • Defining use cases and stories for a chatbot experience

  • Creating a chatbot character and integrate this into the new website

What a wondrous approach – let's go! 

02 Particles

Particles for a unique language

The new website was to be as simple as possible and without unnecessary, distracting elements - the stated goal was a design that was not too obtrusive but still appealing and exciting. We decided to use particles that move discreetly in the background and appear in the form of a so-called parallax effect as the visitor scrolls through the website.

03 Details

Discreet but sophisticated details

No images at all? Focus on the employees? Absolutely! Oversized fonts, particles, discrete interactions, and hover effects - well-placed and thoughtful details can give a website that certain something that ultimately makes it seem so unique.

04 User centred

Say hello to Archie 👋 – the new Arcondis Chatbot

We decided to go with a "less is more" approach with as little content as we could get away with. We also wanted to have less yet catchy and high-quality visual elements to complement the new website.

This is why we created "Archie", a friendly assistant that helps visitors find the correct information or contact person without navigating through the website. What happens when users visit the ARCONDIS? We analyzed and evaluated the most frequent use-cases, which led to implementing the aiaibot software - adding a novel way for the user to reach out for information and interact with the website. Or as our customer called it, “The icing on the cake!”.
