How we worked and developed a site with one of our most well known clients to date: Falkirk Football Club.
In January 2018, we were contacted by Falkirk Football Club to design and develop a brand new website for the club. This was an exciting opportunity for us, to work with a much loved and well known organisation. It was the first time we had worked with any sports team, we wanted to get it right. However, we first had to create a proposal that would suit their taste and requirements.
One of the sites that caught the eye of Falkirk FC’s board was that of Newcastle United and their nearest rivals, Sunderland FC.
By viewing these and capturing screenshots, we were able to get a sense of the style they were looking for.
We immediately began designing a home page prototype for Falkirk.
Like the Newcastle Utd site, we approached the design from a minimalist point of view. The idea was to remove any clutter from the previous website and create clear sections, making sure the brand was consistent throughout the site. We agreed the home page should have the header image, a news section and a video section.
The team at Falkirk F.C were delighted with the initial designs and gave us the green light to start developing their site. Our web team did a fantastic job in realising the vision we had set out, and after a few weeks of back and forth with the club; collecting the right data, content and images, we were finally ready to launch the brand new site.
“With the new season fast approaching, it was essential we had an overhaul of our online presence. Our old website served us well, however, it was in much need of a revamp. We approached local company Crunchy Carrots to design and build a brand new website for Falkirk FC – this is by no means a small task as we have loyal supporters and sponsors to cater to, so it had to be done right. After weeks of meetings, brainstorms and briefs, the team at CC managed to produce a fantastic new website that has been met with exceptional feedback from the board and most importantly, the fans and sponsors. Season ticket sales have been exceptional and we can’t wait for the new season with the new website to match. ” – Kieran Koszary | Commercial Director | Falkirk Football Club
