The Brief

Lucas Blake specialises in the global recruitment of high-performing commercial candidates in the technology sector. They approached us in 2021 looking for design, development and animation for a new online platform to showcase the company’s calibre and credentials in the commercial recruitment space.

The company’s existing website had been built in 2015 – so it was long overdue a revamp. Their new site needed to more effectively appeal to high-earning professionals in IT worldwide, offering a contemporary and accessible overview of the company’s key strengths and values. As part of the website project we were also asked to create bespoke animations to liven up the site, providing interest and an interactive element beyond the basic structure of the new platform.

Our Approach

To refresh the site and ensure it better reflected the standing and status of Lucas Blake in the recruitment industry we developed a high-end design with an approachable feel, powered by an updated platform bespoke-built using WordPress. Now replacing the basic, outdated existing site is a modern, industry-appropriate user interface designed to instantly communicate the nature of the company and its values whilst remaining people-focused and user friendly, encouraging enquiries from potential clients. 

On the front end, the new site is focused on positioning Lucas Blake as experts in their field as well as market leaders, fully demonstrating their wealth of experience and expertise. On the back end we successfully integrated the site with Bullhorn recruitment software to enable a live, real-time jobs feed. To accompany the fresh new site, unique animations were also created to reflect the company’s worldwide reach.
