Platte Valley Labs
Recently, we were given the amazing opportunity to create a website and soil sample management system system for Platte Valley Laboratories Inc, of Gibbon NE. They are among the industry's best in agriculture related testing. Whether it is soil, water, or enviromental testing, the good people at Platte Valley Labs are always sure to be professional and courteous to their customers.
It became our mission to give them a site that reflected that professional and courteous nature. We settled on the final design with a few tweaks fairly quickly. We wanted large bold graphics that paired with a plethora of white space to offset the images . The site becomes much more interesting through the use of the contact and read more call to actions. The call to actions themselves fill up when hovered, giving the site a slight feeling of playfulness while still being very professional.
We wanted to make sure that where ever the potential clients were to navigate, they would be encouraged to visit the Contact page and talk to the folks of Platte Valley Labs. The first three tabs are meant to be a quick jump to a particular article for a service or a wide overview of that category and the services offered in it. The last tab in the main navigation is titled "My Account" and pertains to existing customers. In there, customers can review and pay invoices, as well as look up lab test results. It ties into the impressive back end of the site which actually warrants its very own article which you can find on our site in the near future.
We were extremely fortunate to have had the chance to work with the great people at Platte Valley Labs and can not wait to help them more in the future.
