Matrix Group Launches Redesigned Website for Gibbs & Cox

April 09, 2012

Matrix Group, a leading web design and development agency in the Washington DC metro area, announces the launch of a redesigned website for Gibbs & Cox.

Gibbs & Cox is an independent engineering and design firm specializing in naval architecture and marine engineering.  The firm also provides project management support and consulting engineering services.

The Need

Gibbs & Cox needed to refresh its website.  The website was out-of-date and needed to reinforce the company’s position as the leading maritime solutions firm in the nation.  The company also wanted the website to reflect the exciting new work it is involved with and to attract top talent to support its rapid growth.

The Matrix Group Solution

Gibbs & Cox turned to Matrix Group to update the focus and design of the website. The new site showcases the company's proven track record of excellence in the United States and overseas by highlighting recent projects and other accomplishments. The new site also positions the company as a great place to work by featuring employees and career opportunities. Here's what we did:

  • Created a design that combines a maritime theme with imagery and elements of naval marine engineering and architecture. The website’s home page showcases projects and news plus announces new contracts, projects and additions to the employee team.
  • Used our user focused approach to create a topical navigation. This allows users to navigate the site based on their specific needs. The navigation features Gibbs & Cox services, as well as a separate careers section.
  • Implemented a site-wide content management system. Matrix Group implemented WordPress, a popular system used by many companies today. Today, Gibbs and Cox staff can easily keep all sections of the site up to date.

“The redesign of our website played a strategic role in how we want to position Gibbs & Cox,” says William Post, Chief Operating Officer of Gibbs & Cox. “The redesigned website truly positions our firm as the top naval engineering and design firm in the region.”
