Cisco gold partner Block Solutions appointed Philosophy in February this year to undertake a website refresh. The project started with an interrogation stage consisting user workshops, tone of voice workshops and analysis of their current site. Philosophy also learnt about their client environment to ensure their products and services were portrayed in the best light. An open source system was adopted to give ownership to the team and new photography taken by David Hares encapsulated the new vision for the company.
