Nine Athens is a marketing consultancy with the goal of helping clients to reach their potential through a series of workshops and personalized services. My goal was to get to know Chuck Honnet, the founder of Nine Athens, to inform the creation of his new website. After speaking with Chuck it was clear the new site should represent his many years of experience while showcasing how he has empowered early stage professionals with the necessary tools to excel.
In order to create a successful revision of the website the clients had to be the focus. After searching through Chuck’s workshop photographs I curated a series of images that best represented each section of the new site. I then combined each image with a key word or phrase to act as a headline for the respective sections. Once the focus or “theme” of the new site had been established I moved on to the framework. After some wire framing and sketching we agreed upon a layout for the site. The next step was to decide on a CMS, given my experience along with Chuck’s request to have a low maintenance and easily updated site, I suggested Squarespace over Wordpress as the most user friendly and cost effective option.
Since our work together Chuck has included Nine Athens Music to the website as a vehicle to promote his pro-bono musical interests. Here is a sampling of the website home page as it is now versus the site as it was prior to the update. Visit the new Nine Athens website to further explore: http://www.nineathens.com/.
