Hilcorp is a company built on energy. To showcase their employee, community, and environmental programs they needed a new site to spread the word.
Deliverables: design, art direction, and consultation
Programming: Webhead Tech
Hilcorp is the largest privately-owned exploration and production company in the United States. The leadership wanted a new site that focused on what they do and also showcased their desire to help their communities. I worked with Webhead to provide the client with a site that not only informs the public about who Hilcorp is, but it also highlights their ideals and social responsibility.
How do you create an informative, text heavy site that is also visually pleasing?
The client's wanted to have three specific points of information: backgound of Hilcorp, employment opportunities at Hilcorp, and Hilcorp's social responsibility. While they wanted to showcase their philanthropic endeavors they wanted to stay away from being seen as self-aggrandizing.
The new modular layout gives the corporation a new online face. The navigation provides an easy user experience for those exploring the site. The site features photos of actual company locations and employees. People familiar with Hilcorp will be able to pinpoint the people and places that keep the company running.
Additionally, I was able to create pages that showcase their commitment to social good without appearing as if they were "patting themselves on the back."
