Mason Architects

Mason Architects needed a site that would showcase their work in a dramatic and compelling manner. Their portfolio includes some of the most historic and beautiful resorts and hotels in the world.

Donoughe Design started working initially with Mason Architects on maintaining their Drupal site in web hosting platform. The Drupal site was not responsive and difficult to update. Mason Architects wanted to move to WordPress environment so that they can easily update the content themselves. The new WordPress has increased their findability on search engines and has helped land new projects.

We suggested a photo shoot to enhance the new site with environmental photography to augment all the architecture photos, renderings and site plans. DD worked with Bill Z Photography to develop a shot list and arranged a meeting to discuss the shoot. The images portrayed an architect at the top of his game; mentoring and art directing his seasoned staff as they worked on some of the most beautiful hotels and resorts in the world.
