Peter Kofman needed a website fast.

He had a very important press conference in a week’s time and his Projectcore website badly needed an upgrade.

Projectcore before Wex Sites – before

In our initial meeting Peter explained that he needed a fresh, clean look that would showcase the firm’s new project – overseeing the proposed development by David Mirvish and Frank Gehry on King Street in the heart of Toronto’s Entertainment District.

I began by choosing the Elegant Themes Lucid template and created a logo to match Projectcore’s branding. I matched the font and cherry-picked the colour of the logo in Photoshop.

Peter sent me a bunch of Frank Gehry‘s incredible images and I built a gallery for the home page and added the promotional video of the project.

Peter also sent me some images of other Projectcore projects and I built galleries for each:

I used the NextGen gallery plugin to create the galleries on each project page. We will be adding more galleries at a later date. I love how the images pop against the white background of the website.

We wanted to give visitors an idea of the man behind the firm and get away from the dull and dry copy on the old website. I created the page Peter Kofman which gives some background to Peter‘s career and includes a link to his Erace Cancer Cycling Team and his LinkedIn profile.

I really like the clean and non-fussy look to the website. The projects speak for themselves and I enjoyed making this an image-heavy site.

The most important thing is that Peter’s new website was ready ahead of the press conference and has helped generate a lot of interest in Projectcore’s work.

We will be adding more content as the project develops. I look forward to seeing how this website grows in time.
