Website Refresh UX, Design & Development

Website Design and Development

We created a completely responsive website that enables existing users to entice new users to the site through sweet social sharing tools, built directly into a custom parallax timeline. In addition, robust and informational features were created to drive traffic to historical partner sites for online orders. Product retailers and MARS associates can collaborate to manage and maintain the site’s content through three separate CMS login levels. Check out this recap video shared at the Historical Chocolate Society meeting in 2019.

Development tech:

    • Headless architecture
    • Multiple user-types with different experiences and permissions 
    • Extensive SEO work and metadata management
    • Stringent accessibility requirements 
    • React search
