Toyota Material Handling Europe’s (TMHE) design team creates optimum quality forklifts with employee and customer in mind.
The existing THME website was a microsite within a much larger Toyota site with fractured, hard to find content and old low quality images.
The key goals for the this project were:
Working alongside a project manager I was involved in the early planning phases of the project, assisting in client meetings and guiding content creation.
I created wireframes(balsamiq) to determine site layout and structure; alongside mood boards and inspirational material. After the direction was confirmed with the client, adhering to Toyota's brand guidelines, I produced all design work in Sketch.
The clients for this project provided a unique challenge as they were also designers in their own field, so had a strong sense of how they wanted the site to look and feel. By working closely together we developed an efficient working relationship and were quickly on the same page with the aesthetics of the site. This made for very few revisions and quick sign-offs.
I built the site using HTML/CSS (SASS) and then integrated it with Wordpress (Custom post types, Blog, Editable regions etc).
Subtle css animations were used throughout the site to promote the sense of interactivity and give the site a techy feel.
This project was deemed a success by everyone involved and is used by Sqore as one of their key portfolio pieces. We have continued to add new sections/functionality to the site as budget has become available and also won further contracts with Toyota off the back of this project.
