About

Glenhawk is a financial institution from London that provides short-term loans for several types of real estate:

  • commercial and semi-commercial
  • residential
  • refurbishment
  • 2nd charge

They differ from the rest of the lenders in the market. Having a strong capital base to lend, Glenhawk helps those looking to buy a new property, start property investment or refurbishment.

The company has an efficient credit approval process, no exit or admin fees, and requires no minimum income.

Goals

Since Glenhawk is growing rapidly and attracting a lot of press attention, they wanted to refresh their brand and update the website.

Now that the company has extended the range of their financial products, it was decided to reflect the brand values and character online. This will help the company communicate clear positioning to their clients and attract new businesses.

Solution

The Marketing Team at Glenhawk are familiar with WordPress, so we decided to use it again and build the new website.

One of the key requirements was the ease of use and room for customisation, and WordPress works great for that making it easy to maintain the website and introduce updates.

The design was provided by Daniel Foster, a freelance designer who works for the Glenhawk Marketing Team, whose primary requirement was a pixel-perfect implementation.

Project highlights

We started our work on the project from a kick-off Skype where we discussed the designs, required functionality and the behaviour of the specific elements.

After assessing the final scope, the Project Manager provided the roadmap with sprint deadlines and the communication plan. Every sprint lasted one or two weeks, and we demonstrated the progress after the completion of each sprint.
