The Project:

Anoplate’s extensive services required intuitive information architecture to make it easy for clients to find what they’re looking for. Anoplate’s modernized website redesign also needed to accurately represent the company’s established branding. Anoplate staff also needed to be able to easily update site content, allowing for various departments to manage their online resource.
