The Brief

Understanding their competition was key to delivering a stand-out digital solution

Sozala Energy approached 4i to design and develop a super simple website with just a few content-based pages. We also had the opportunity to create the copy, which made the project even more enjoyable as we got to learn a lot about the industry. The biggest challenge with this project

was the deadline. Close to half of the design decisions were governed by the tight turnaround, and understanding their competition was key to delivering a digital solution that would put them on the map and create standout among their competitors.

 

How We Solved It

We used Bootstrap framework and Drupal CMF to make the site really easy to update on-the-go

The challenge was to build the site in a way that could be easily maintained by the client. So we put a lot of emphasis on making it easy to use. For the responsive design we used the Bootstrap framework, and for the styling and animations CSS, we used Drupal, which is a Content Management Framework (CMF) that makes it possible to build a CMS quickly.

Close to half of the design decisions were governed by the tight turnaround, so we used a minimalist approach while ensuring the professional look and feel came through strongly. Our teams worked really well together on compromises and workarounds, and providing suggestions while making collaborative decisions in order to meet the deadline.
