The site needed to display thought leadership and industry news.

Strategy

A comprehensive review of competitors in the marketplace and interviews with key stakeholders informed our creation of deep customer personas, user journeys, conversion funnels, and flow charts. These studies allowed us to define exactly how the new Smith website would help establish trust, clarify core business services, and drive users to find electronic components and make contact with Smith sales representatives.

Imagery and Typography Details

Starting with a strong corporate color palette grounded in bold reds and blues, we were able to innovate and push style boundaries by introducing subtle illustrated details, dynamic photo masking, and on-scroll animations throughout the site to keep users engaged. Photography and custom-produced 3D video focuses on the types of components Smith specializes in distributing, so every page helps communicate the brand’s core competencies and commitment to quality.
