kc web design and Fujitsu have been working together for a number of years. We originally created the Fujitsu UK tech blog back in 2014 and since then it’s gone on to become a leading tech blog for UK business leaders. The latest version of the blog will be it’s third incarnation making sure it stays at the forefront of it’s market. With hundreds of authors and thousands of articles covering multiple industries and topics the new design took over 6 months from initial ideas to finished site.
For this iteration of the site we wanted to create a more magazine like feel as well as bringing the design inline with ongoing changes to the main Fujitsu UK and Global websites. A massive overhaul of the main Fujitsu website is ongoing and we needed to make sure the blog was brought inline with those changes. More emphasis was given to key articles from all of the industries and topics on the home page. Larger header images, improved typography and readability, better accessibility and a more optimised mobile experience have all improved the general feel of the site.
The main core of the site has essentially stayed the same but with some WordPress tweaks under the hood to improve performance. The design was completely changed and brand new code developed, gone are the old rounded corners and old style contained layouts replaced with a new modern look and feel to compliment the changes happening at Fujitsu. More use was made of larger screen sizes as well as a better small screen experience.
