Branding, Website Design and Development For SF Construction Firm

Cahill Contractors

Cahill Contractors, Inc. is a Bay Area construction firm with experience across many industries around San Francisco and all sides of the Bay. Cahill prides itself on professionalism, collaboration, and value, as well as its 100-year history of exceptional quality. Cahill Contractors approached Project6 because their marketing materials were outdated and lacked visual focus. They had been in business 100 years and wanted to retain some level of brand continuity, but their logo design was difficult to understand, they employed far too many type styles, their website layout was cluttered, and their black and white construction images was not doing justice to Cahill’s impressive work. Project6 helped step Cahill stakeholders through a rebranding process to determine which elements of the existing, long-standing branding to retain — and which to refresh. The website architecture needed to be simplified to focus site visitors on Cahill’s main selling point, beautiful images of their work across many different industries, and better highlight their client relationships. The redesign engagement resulted in a strong new identity, including a bold logo mark and a unified stationery system complete with letterhead, envelopes and business cards. Project6 then extended that identity to a website built on the Drupal platform, showcasing Cahill’s portfolio images in a dynamic feature slideshow that allows visitors to search by industry type – and enabling Cahill administrators to easily update their online portfolio. Project6 also brought Cahill’s bidding opportunities online, allowing subcontractors to submit online proposals for upcoming work.
