Telling a unique story through design and focus

Landform has a unique story but its old website wasn’t telling it effectively. Windmill wanted to focus on Landform’s differentiators with the new design. It did this in two ways. First, it used the homepage hero banner to focus on Landform’s core values. The homepage also clearly showcased Landform’s three lines of service which helped highlight their multi-disciplinary expertise.
