GFDS Engineers is a leading structural design firm with a singular mission: make architects heroes. With offices in San Francisco, Hawaii and Aspen, Colorado, their appreciation for fine architecture and design sensibility has earned them an award winning client list of cutting edge architects. Their portfolio includes distinctive residential estates and signature landmarks such as Google Headquarters, FDR Memorial and California Palace of Legion of Honor.
The new website had to reflect the high quality style and design that has made GFDS so successful. GFDS Engineers has a stunning portfolio of work that includes high-end residences and buildings. They wanted visitors to easily browse projects with large images and clear details. The firm wanted to showcase elegance and quality. Additionally, they needed an easy way to manage projects, team members and news.
GFDS is all about high-quality design, so design is front and center on this project. Big imagery, subtle animation, elegant fonts and bold colors draw the visitor in and inspires click-throughs. The site has a property portfolio, team page with overlay bios, rich news and an elegant output for career opportunities. We used WordPress to power the new site and developed powerful plugins and a premium visual editor. We continue to offer GFDS ongoing security and maintenance support.
