Video Player

The video player is integrated into the website’s visual aesthetic so the experience remains consistent even if a user wants to view a video.

Diamond Schmitt’s history page was designed to function as an interactive timeline. Users can scrub through time and see some of the company’s most renowned works.

Editorial Variety

To keep pages fresh and interesting, we designed pages like an editorial and not a typical webpage. The site takes advantage of 21 unique templates.

The firm’s most important assets are its people and community. A careers and culture section was designed to explain how Diamond Schmitt promotes diversity and sustainability, providing potential employees with a good idea of the firm’s character and values.

With the success of the new site, Evoke Solutions was also asked to design the company’s intranet.

The intranet maintained the clean and sophisticated style established in the main site.

The key strategy to the site redesign was to allow for a universal navigation to clearly provide a high-level view of their services, practice areas and projects. Detailed analytics allow the firm to adjust their messaging on a regular basis.

The first step to creating a great website is taking the time to develop a solid foundation. Built on a state of the art CMS platform, Evoke Solutions has empowered DSAI with a powerful tool to showcase their most recent work, and the ability to adjust the messaging and information architecture to reflect user metrics.

When sending out files to the developers, we always create a comprehensive CSS style guide for all fonts, links buttons etc. As a part of our web development process, all changes are thoroughly documented in the QA step.

We experimented with multiple styles and ways of organizing the data before we arrived at the final, ideal solution.
