South Bank Corporation

Background

South Bank Corporation manages Brisbane's iconic riverfront destination, South Bank. The Corporation also owns Brisbane's Convention and Exhibition Centre, which is officially ranked among the world's top three convention centres.

The problem

The Corporation needed to extricate itself from its former website technology. It wanted to use the opportunity to revitalise the look and feel of the site, imparting on visitors a quintessential "wow-factor" that was notably absent in the old site.

The solution

We achieved the required "wow-factor" through use of bold colours, vivid photography, video of real staff membersinteractive maps, and local iconic elements such as thongs, the White Ibis, the Queensland Bottle Tree, the Bush Turkey and the Eastern Water Dragon.

The Web Marketing Association agreed, and awarded the site in 2009 for ‘Outstanding achievement in web development’:
