Murray & Henderson chartered accountants are traditional chartered accountants in Greenock with a modern approach to accounting.
Michael Harkins, Joint Managing Director, contacted Design Hero to help bring those values of innovation onto their accounting website.
Although the business had an existing website, Michael was keen to convey an extra sense of professionalism and asked us to bring Design Hero’s signature design flair to the front end of the business website.
The new website design for this accounting business looked to mathematics as inspiration; I designed the new accountants website around a strict decimal grid system, which brings a sense of precision and careful balance to the website; ideal values for anyone looking for an accountant.
Michael was keen to introduce minimalism principles to the website and was relentless in cutting anything extraneous, or unnecessary, with a keen accountants eye for detail.
Here are the results; a sharp, precise new website for an accountant in Greenock with a keen attention to detail:
A good accountants practice is nothing without a good team of course! The new team page shows off the wealth of experience at Murray & Henderson.
The original pitch for the website was built around the tagline; “Traditional accountancy with a modern approach”. I took that to heart and designed an animated into with the strapline leading the user into video content below.
The content on the new accounting website follows a strict grid. This rational metric layout gives a sense of balance and order to even the most minimalist parts of the website.
The new website for this chartered accountant shows off the accounting services on offer, with neat, minimalist thumbnails for each service.
Each accounting service has its own page on the website, breaking down the service into simple terms the user can digest, as well as a handy sidebar for quick navigation, and a sticky contact section to help convert users into customers.
Michael was keen to highlight the local heritage of Murray and Henderson, with an about page leading with some stunning aerial photography of Inverclyde. Modern icons also highlight the accountant’s market sector and regular customers.
