Wide Area Communications design

Wide Area

Relaunched in early 2013, the website for Wide Area was designed to attract more business and promote the company’s unique CMS management tool, as well as provide useful guides for existing clients. I designed and help implement the website, introducing the bold colour scheme and easy transition to mobile that the site was previously lacking.
