Lowry Mill is a former Victorian spinning mill in Manchester that has been extensively modified to provide superior office suites. Their old website had become dated and no longer represented its strong identity following recent growth and change.
A new site needed to enable Lowry Mill to showcase its high end offering and keep the site up to date with news so that prospective tenants are able to experience the appeal of the building and enquire about being part of this prestigious, exciting location.
How we helped
We developed bespoke brochure website including blog at http://lowrymill.co.uk/ in just over a month from getting the go ahead right through to go live.
The design uses high quality images and white space combined with minimal text to create a clean, modern and sophisticated feel that reflects the Lowry Mill offering. The character and impact of the building is brought to life through the imagery, with a full screen image slider on the home page to give a stunning first impression and galleries so that website visitors get a complete visual impression. The blog and tenant testimonials that are interspersed through the site paint a picture of the culture and character of Lowry Mill and enable users to envisage how their company would fit in.
The navigation is simple and enables visitors to flow smoothly from attention-grabbing facts on to detailed specifications, culminating in a brief contact form to fire off a quick enquiry.
The WordPress content management system has been customised so that it’s as user friendly as possible, with multi-location features such as testimonials managed in one area for simple and quick updates.
Lowry Mill is responsive on laptop, tablet and mobiles so users get the full site experience whatever device they’re using.
What they said
“I have really enjoyed working with Helen and the 6-2 team on the design of the new Lowry Mill website. We wanted a clean and simple new website and they managed to pick up exactly what we were looking for at a very early stage. Even though no major changes were needed, they have put up with all of our tinkering and have shown a great attention to detail. We have used several larger website designers for our other businesses in the past and none have given us nearly the same level of personal contact and care. I would have no hesitation in recommending 6-2.”
