Mondolaunche Quattro!

Last week was high-end lighting supplier Mondoluce’s 18th birthday, and to celebrate they not only threw a party, but launched three new brands and websites plus a dedicated blog.

Beautiful and functional—just the way it should be

We worked closely with Mondoluce’s branding partner The Globe, establishing a site architecture and browsing experience that would allow users to find lighting fixtures by usage, brand, product and project type. From the industry audience feedback we’ve received, this functionality—combined with The Globe’s slick design—has made their task of sourcing lighting a whole lot easier!

Una grande famiglia

Mondoluce now has three distinct brands in their family; Mondoluce, Metalight, and Mialuce. The three brand sites and Illuminati blog are all separate domains, but are conveniently managed together using WordPress Multisite and a custom Tentacle catalogue system.

Tentacle handles brands, products, projects, downloads and filtering options, ensuring content is always displayed neatly and consistently. Everything is managed from the one interface, and can be set to show on any of the three brand sites.

Effortlessly fresh

With the exception of the featured banner images, everything you see on each home page is generated automatically from product, project, news and brand content, meaning minimal effort is required to keep it looking fresh.

LaunchCake is yet to be eaten on this one because we were too busy eating tapas at the LaunchParty to plan it! Watch this space for a followup blog…

Ferrum Consultants launches rejuvenated website

Established in 2007, Ferrum Consultants is a specialist consultancy that deliver commercial, technical and market expertise to the iron ore and ferrous metallics industries. The head office is based in Perth, Western Australia and the small, multi-disciplinary team also have offices in the east coast of Australia.

The key issues with their previous site was that they were unable to edit the content and the original design restricted some other elements, so we re-designed the look and feel and built a new WordPress website which highlighted the expanding services.  The new site had a dedicated page for their Masterclass service, as well as adding a link to their Linkedin page – that we recommended they set up to launch alongside the rejuvenated site.

Ferrum Consultants wanted to refresh their original site design with something that presented their current business nature – professional but approachable. This was achieved by updating the initial bright blue colour template to a fresh white and deeper blue used predominantly in the footer of the site. The logo had a lot of history attached to it and thus the interlocking shapes was a major feature throughout the design.

Ferrum Consultants offer a wide range of services and provide strategic advice using their vast expertise in the industry. They have over 150 years of combined Australian and international experience. We collaborated with the The Write Business a professional writing company who provided a copywriting service and assisted Ferrum Consultants with content entry. We had a great team throughout the process and were able to work together to achieve a common goal. The directors Dan and Warren joined our team to celebrate the launch and enjoyed a cup of tea and LaunchCake!
