In the Autumn of 2013, Six Chartered Accountants decided to start a new firm and open the doors to ‘Consilium Chartered Accountants.’ The company was set up to provide a ‘client-focussed’ service for Scottish businesses and we were delighted to be given the opportunity to work with them to help them build a new website.
We wanted to really get under the skin of the ‘Consilium’ team and learn more about their staff to find out what made them tick. We found that, almost in every case, there was an emphasis on building proper relationships with clients and a desire to know the real stories behind the numbers about their businesses.
‘Getting to know the people behind the numbers’ became the theme for the entire project. This was captured in a number of ways including the basic tagline of the website, the art-directed photography of the Consilium Partners in-situ with clients on the homepage and each staff member begin given pride of place on the website with their own biographies so that current and future clients could get to know the real people they would be working with.
A clean, direct and engaging website was created. The authentic, personal and open feel around the company is portrayed in their tagline, as well as the focus is on clear images over words. This sets them apart from many of their contemporaries.
“The loft designed and built a tremendous website for Consilium which very nicely summarises who we are and what we are about. It was a fun process, the site works exceptionally well and we have received many compliments on its look and feel. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the loft to others.”
