Western Marine Construction is a general contractor specializing in water-based construction based in Seattle, WA. When this client first contacted us they had an outdated online presence that was not mobile-friendly and difficult for them to manage and update. We recommended a mobile-first WordPress website to overcome these obstacles.

Art Direction & Content Strategy


When Western Marine Construction contacted us they had a well-established business and a very outdated online presence. And the vision for their new online presence was a bit different from most of our clients. Our mobile-first web design for Western Marine Construction started with a discovery consult to learn more about their vision and business objectives. This client provides marine construction services in Alaska and Washington and uses their website to showcase previous projects rather than attracting new clients.

UX / UI Design


We worked with the client to determine a mobile-friendly approach to feature their projects in a more exciting fashion. Once this step was completed we were able to start the actual mobile-first web design for Western Marine Construction in earnest. The actual mobile-first website is fairly small and did not require any special functionality. The main request from the client was to create a slick project portfolio without too much text content. Our team worked with the client through a number of design iterations until we settled on a Parallax scrolling project portfolio.

WordPress Web Design & SEO


The last part of the WordPress web design project for Western Marine Construction was to make a few final design and content tweaks. The final step in our mobile-first web design for this client was to complete on-page and on-site SEO configurations and launch their new website. This also included our standard website optimization and security updates to keep the site running smoothly, and without too much required client interaction. Since each project can take up to a year or longer this is one site that will not require weekly updates!
