Our website gets overhauled


Tuesday, 01 June 2010 - 01:18

We are very pleased to announce the release of our new web presence and brand strategy.  As part of our on going investment into our business, we commissioned local brand and marketing communications specialists, Tim Beere and Luke Stratton, to design and build us a new website.  Built to the very latest web standards, it has been built from the ground up to meet the changing needs and requirements of our business, being totally scaleable and manageable in house.  The site utilises some powerful tools that will help us grow our business including a Forum, Social and Business Networking functionality as well as being completley search engine optimised.

Far exceeding the brief set, Tim brought us his wealth of expertise and creativity from a career in International brand management, devising a differentiating brand strategy for us that really captures the essence of our business.  I don't think there is anything quite like it in our industry, it really sets us apart.  It is so much more than a slogan, it is a way of working and a culture we embrace here at L Hunt & Sons, it transcends everything we do.

Tim said 'It has been a real priviledge for us to work on this project with L Hunt & Sons.  It is not often one gets the opportunity to work on a brand steeped in such history and heritage.  We always felt there was a real opportunity to make a positive difference and introduce industry differentiating messaging.  This isn't a shallow case of window dressing and hype, the core values are very real - L Hunt & Sons live and breath HUNTUSUAL everyday, we just came up with a word to articulate what they do'.

Luke worked tirelessly on the programming and backend to the site, ensuring everything worked faultlessly.  All the more extraordinary, Luke has only recently completed Secondary School and is now fully embarked on an IT Diploma at Alton College!  Luke already has a number of successful commercial websites under his belt and can now add ours to a growing portfolio.

Tim added "This is so much more than just a website.  HUNTUSUAL is a big idea, a philosophy and attitude that will be applied to a number of other marketing assets to help drive the business forward.  There is much more to come!"
