Developing the new website for the rebrand and refresh of Border Biscuits.
Border Biscuits is a premium biscuit maker based in Scotland known for their high quality and homely biscuits. They’ve been a client of ours for many years (nearly 20 by our count). We’ve worked with them on projects as varied as animation and advertising through to their previous website. One of our oldest and best clients, it’s always a pleasure to work with the Border team. This project was, however a little different…
For several months Border had been working with Haygarth, a design agency based in London, on updating their branding and tone. The idea was to give Border a more modern and clean design reflecting the premium nature of the brand and product. What was delivered was a stunning overhaul of the brand, packaging and digital appearance of Border. This is where Zen came in, as Border’s trusted web developer for many years it was out job to turn Haygarth’s wonderful designs into a functioning website.
Working with both teams at Border and Haygarth we implemented a new site build for Border Biscuits on the Umbraco 9 CMS based upon .NET framework. The main goals for the site were to stick as closely as possible to the design concepts whilst keeping the site responsive for use across all possible devices. It was also required that the site be built in a modular fashion, allowing Border and Haygarth to update content as and when required, for new products etc, with minimum help from developers. These objectives were met, and the site today represents a wonderful refresh for the Border brand.
