Yellow Mountain Stoneworks is the preferred custom architectural stone provider for large-scale installations in the US Northwest. Yellow Mountain approached Delin Design to create an improved website that would be of more use to their clients by better showcasing their products and body of work. In order to achieve this, the website would need to be mobile-friendly for team members in the field and easy for the client to update.
Because of the standout quality of their products and case studies, we chose to take a more minimalistic approach to the design and layout in order to maximize the impact of their impressive imagery.
We built a custom WordPress theme that gave Yellow Mountain the ability to add or delete products with ease. The layouts scale down gracefully to accommodate smaller screens, ensuring that gestures appropriate for the medium such as “swipe” were integrated for a better user experience. Image optimization was a key consideration to ensure the site would perform well on mobile devices of all varieties.
The finished product is a website that is simply elegant. It serves as a functional tool to showcase the complete offerings of Yellow Mountain StoneWorks. Current and prospective customers now have the ability to view the company’s full portfolio of completed works and visualize the potential for their own projects. It’s the perfect complement to a company that has built its reputation on consistently providing a unique, quality stone products that are delivered on time and on budget. The website further supports why builders and architects alike see Yellow Mountain StoneWorks as the vendor of choice for custom architectural stone.
