Bray Architects is an educational and civic design leader that serves clients, advances industry and strengthens communities. Their marketing team came to us to rebuild their digital home and launch an evolved brand. The new website needed to represent who they are as a company, act as a focal point for marketing initiatives and showcase its stunning portfolio of work. To accomplish this, we pushed WordPress to its limits to create a sleek and contemporary site that perfectly pairs form and function (our favorite).

Work with stakeholders to build a strong foundationTo ensure sustainability, we created patterns, text containers and blocks in WordPress that could contribute to a reliable and repeatable design system. It also would support their efforts to manage materials in-house.
Worked hands-on with their design teamThe foundation allowed our designers to swiftly craft, build and implement designs hand-in-hand with Bray's branding team. The collaboration was vital to apply a new brand identity and implement UX best practices.
Leverage and highlight existing assetsBray had an unbelievable image library to pull from (woo-hoo!). We were able to leverage these assets to create embedded hero images alongside geometric design elements, supported by a streamlined user interface. We also were able to keep and relink to their Constant Contact processes and support newsletter signups.
Constructing a user-driven websiteThe dev team leveraged our design system to construct the website's technical framework. The site included a unique use of WordPress categories to view and filter Bray's portfolio of work. The focus was to empower their in-house team to manage content entry and future updates.
