MJ Hire chose Black Pig to build its new website and briefed us to address two problems in particular that the current site posed. The visual design was outdated and did not respond to viewing on mobile devices and also an up to date, more user friendly content management system was needed.

Black Pig’s creative team developed two responsive design concepts for the new website, from which the MJ Hire team chose one to be developed. We presented designs for all the key pages of the website, keeping our focus on making it as easy as possible for customers to navigate to the products available for hire and find the item they were looking for.

A key requirement of the website was that it must allow MJ Hire to keep it up date with the products that are currently in demand for the time of year. With the new site they are able to easily update the quick links to the most popular hire categories which are listed on the home page to ensure they are always relevant. They can also create eye-catching Featured Product panels to promote current special offers and discounts.

The Find A Depot section lists all 12 locations, with an individual page for each branch providing contact details, location map, opening hours and an enquiry form.  The site also features a Jobs section where MJ Hire can upload current vacancies and candidates submit their application online.

We chose to build the new site in WordPress, due to its versatility and intuitive user interface which is especially suited to easy content editing by non-technical users.
