Weylandts is Live!


The new Weylandts website is live. Emma Carpenter (Art Director), Neil Garb (Senior Developer) and Carrie Davidson (Copywriter) have created a beautiful informative site that is chock-full of functionality. The CMS backend is just as beautiful functionally as the front-end is aesthetically.My involvement was only right in the beginning, drafting the first wireframes of the new site. Emma then took those and improved upon them immeasurably – later with the help of Neil.

Our stats are immediately showing a huge increase in average page views (25) and time spent browsing (12 minutes). Which is testimony to all the seriously hardcore thinking that went into this build.

I’m tremendously proud of their achievement. Go have a look at what they made.

About torgnyhylen

I'm an digital creative director working in Cape Town South Africa for Ogilvy Interactive. I've been designing in some capacity for the last 14 years, 12 of those online. I love what I do... and if there was one thing I wish I could do more of... it would be to paint. Besides movies and art, my other serious past-time is good old pen & paper role-playing games. Writing stories for friends that take years to complete and are improved beyond recogination by their participation is a real kick.

    I am a South African based in Dubai and find it impossible to open the site. It takes too long to load and times out. When I manage to open the site, although the style of the site is clean and simple, it is not intuitive, and the pics take too long to load. Just slow overall.

      Are you still having issues? There was a period of 2/3 weeks when our server got hacked and we had to do an emergency site move. Wasn’t fun… but everything should be back to normal.
