Designed, developed, and launched a complete redesign of ADEX International’s website, with a focus on improving effectiveness of marketing and sales efforts. The project revolved around improving display of content, navigation, usability, and an updated look-and-feel that better reflects the quality of work provided by ADEX International. 

The challenge

We were tasked with taking a 50+ year old brand, and elevate them with a modern, clean website that matches the aesthetic of their work. Our primary goal was to convey, directly on the website, the same feeling of awe and amazement we have when interacting with ADEX exhibits.

The user experience

Navigation, ease of use, and intuitiveness were all big factors in the redesign of their website. We focused heavily on the strategy behind where content lives throughout the site, to ensure prospects can easily find what they need.

The home page

The homepage is arguably one of, if not the most, important page on any site. We wanted to make sure that site visitors immediately knew what ADEX International does, immediately believe that they are of the highest quality, and drive them to continue engaging with other parts of the site to learn more, and ultimately contact them.

“Canned Spinach was a tremendous asset for ADEX International’s new website. They provided invaluable insights into the design and placement of the information we wanted to portray. The variety of services that ADEX International provides is broad, but Canned Spinach was able to organize our offerings in a cohesive and strategic manner. Canned Spinach even went the extra step to do staff training so that ADEX employees can update our portfolio on our end. This allows us to keep our portfolio page consistent and up-to-date. Our website it now clean, intuitive to navigate, and simple to update.

Canned Spinach was professional, dedicated to spending the time needed, and eager to fully understand our business. Their quality of work is very much appreciated and highly recommended.”

The portfolio page

The portfolio page is another critical page for the ADEX site – this is where they get to brag about all the amazing projects they’ve done for a lot of really impressive brands. Since ADEX has a handful of different client types, it was important to allow prospects filter out the irrelevant portfolio pieces. After filtering to the appropriate types of projects, visitors can then learn more about each individual project, with visuals and descriptions of each one.

The navigation

The importance of navigation was an aspect of the site’s redesign that the client wanted to place a big focus on. ADEX has a handful of different client types, so the site needs to allow each of them to effectively navigate to the relevant sections of the site.
