Website Design – White Label

Sherpa Adventure Gear is a global clothing brand with a purpose. Renowned for high-quality outdoor clothing for men and women, the company is committed to making a big impact through helping the communities and people of Nepal. 

With a large, multi-national SEO migration project already underway with Marketing Labs, Sherpa Adventure Gear tasked the expert team to design and develop a new website for the .fr extension of their primary domain, using translated French content. The design needed to closely match the look and feel of their .co.uk site, include pop-out video content and display a range of selected brand photography.

Working in partnership with Marketing Labs, the website was built with Divi on WordPress. Using a full-page header banner, YouTube videos were embedded behind a ‘play’ button and settings edited to remove adverts and video autoplays.

To maximise brand cohesion, a wide selection of brand photography was used across the site with background images behind the header and footer of the design. Working closely with the in-house translator, French content was correctly position throughout the site.

Mike worked quickly and efficiently to build this site for a client who required an extremely fast delivery date. Tightly following the design brief, he closely matched the site’s look and feel to the brand and seamlessly incorporated the client’s chosen images. Communication was clear and prompt at all times and he was attentive when running through translation revisions. I would 100% recommend Mike and look forward to working with him again.
