Chris Curd Design has launched Fit Out UK’s new website and facility video.
Fit Out UK is one of the UK’s leading joinery and fit-out contractors. It works in the retail, leisure, commercial and residential sectors. It was established in 2000, and has a turnover of £40 million gained from an end-to-end approach to design, manufacture, to fit-out and transportation.
Fit Out UK has clients as diverse as Sainsbury’s, high-end restaurants Tom’s Kitchen and Café Anglais, and Notting Hill Preparatory School. It puts a real emphasis on building excellent, long-term client relationships.
In designing the website, the strong visual element of Fit Out UK’s work was at the forefront of the design team’s mind. Striking examples of the end-product are displayed to beautiful effect across the site with an emphasis on the variety and quality of the work seen immediately on the homepage.
A bright blue and white colour scheme gives a clean, modern and sleek feel to the site. It contains a lot of information about the company, both from an end-product perspective and the way that the company works. This includes its emphasis on sustainability - it is ISO 14001 accredited, uses only FSC-approved products and has taken significant steps to reduce its environmental impact at its operating site in London.
The site is responsively designed. It works well across mobile phones, tablets and desktops, but the site really comes into its own on a larger screen as the visuals can be fully appreciated, which was a core part of the brief. The UI enables an easy-to-navigate experience. The comprehensive menu at the top of the homepage allows easy and swift access to areas of most interest.
The use of video, with images of the business at work rather than a voiceover, serves to highlight the physical nature of the work that results in striking spaces.
Fit Out UK also uses the site to recruit talent and an important part of the site is the recruitment page. Here, prospective candidates can upload CVs and make expressions of interest in working for Fit Out UK.
Chris Curd, Managing Director, noted; “The beautiful and varied end-results achieved by Fit Out UK made this a great project. The difficulty came with choosing what to include in the site and what to leave out, as Fit Out UK provides an excellent, well-crafted quality finish every time and we believe we have provided a website that emphasises this for their brand and business.”
