Stonewall+ pours new digital life into

Stonewall+, the digital marketing agency, have applied their creative magic to redesign brandhouse's website, pouring new life into the already celebrated premium alcohol beverage company.
Stonewall+ set out to create a website that was not only aesthetically appealing to its prospective and existing target audience but that would enable them to interact with each of brandhouse's stable of iconic brands. Each brand features related content such as brand news, events, and links to brand websites and adverts. The strong styling of the website, including the use of bold imagery and a vivid color palette, demonstrates brandhouse's core vision and values of celebration, greatness, premium, innovation and originality.

Including additional features such as an interactive timeline to celebrate brandhouse's achievements and milestones, an advertising gallery to view the adverts of their brands as well as a listing of CSI campaigns and projects has resulted in a website that is as visually appealing as it is user-friendly.

"The brandhouse project was yet another great collaborative effort between ourselves and our Microsoft development partner, Global Vision. Our relationship is proving to be a formidable one, where we offer strong strategic input upfront, supported by excellent creative and interface skill, whilst underpinned by fantastic and bullet proof technology,” says Jacques Nel, Managing Director of Stonewall+ Digital Marketing.

The launch of the new website coincides with the next chapter in the history of brandhouse as it looks ahead at becoming South Africa's leading alcohol beverage company distributing premium brands such as Smirnoff, Bertrams VO, Johnnie Walker, Captain Morgan, J&B, Jose Cuervo, Baileys, Bell's, Amstel, Windhoek, Heineken, Guinness and Foundry.

“The re-engineering and redesign of the brandhouse website has been a wonderful journey of innovation and creativity. Stonewall+, together with Global Vision providing back-end support, have produced a fantastic site and users visiting will get to see our full portfolio of brands as well as get an insight into why brandhouse is one of the best companies to work for in South Africa,” says Priscilla Singh, Corporate and Brand PR Manager of brandhouse.
