With over 17 years of experience and practice, Ramsden Lawyers are ever growing and expanding their services. By understanding their clients, they are able to produce excellent legal solutions for their queries. However, they felt an update to their current brand was necessary to help provide clients with a seamless experience and prepare them with enriching legal content. By having a newly structured website, Ramsden Lawyers can provide new content more efficiently to their audience. At Oliver Black, we were approached to help create a new website to reinforce their position as the top law firm on the Gold Coast. We were able to achieve this by updating and using their current brand to push it to it’s boundaries for a professional and sleek brand.

The Arts Centre Gold Coast (TACGC) will become the cornerstone of stage one of the Gold Coast Cultural Precinct (GCCP) with existing infrastructure and offerings serving as the initial core of the precinct as the surrounds are developed. This transformation will not only see the surrounds of the TACGC developed but also include upgrades and extensions to the current TACGC itself.
With TACGC set to become part of the GCCP along with the City Gallery, Cinemas and Parklands, a new website is required that encompasses, facilitates and communicates the precinct in its short and long term progression. The site needs to include leading edge features, capabilities and a design focus that positions and communicates the GCCP as a highly progressive and world class cultural facility.
