Born and bred in the heart of Grimsby, our director Shane Traill is passionate about the regeneration and development of the town and sees the Made Great in Grimsby brand as a key part of this. After a few conversations with Simon, we had a clear vision about how we could develop the brand, and how the website could support this. We were keen to embrace the culture and character of the area, whilst also telling the great story of how Grimsby is still at the heart of the fishing industry worldwide.
Bringing the local community closer is what us Grimbarians do, which is why we enlisted the help of Chris Waud, expert local photographer to deliver the website photography. He really helped to bring the docks of Grimsby to life, capturing the passion that the local fishmongers have.
A key feature within the design and development of this website was to not only promote the fantastic array of seafood within Grimsby, but also encourage consumers to get creative in the kitchen too. We created a cook-a-long section featuring 5 local celebs in their own kitchens.
This video series was made in collaboration with Steven Bennett, who is commonly referred to as ‘The Lincolnshire Chef’. Not only is he well known for his expert culinary skills, he is a Seafish Industry Authority ‘Love Seafood’ Seafood Champion, and owns Healing Manor Hotel. A beautiful wedding venue, restaurant & hotel set in the stunning Lincolnshire countryside.
Here is a testimonial from the client, giving his view on how the project went:
It's been a great experience working with Shane and his team to design and launch this website. They took on board the brief and nailed it first time with the design and content.
