    We start by creating a plan. The company has six major lines of business, each of which includes a similar set of services. To make sure all the information is presented properly, we decide to go with the matrix structure, similar to coordinates on a chessboard.

    Thinking through internal pages. Due to the absence of quality photographs, deciding to use illustrations as main typographic elements. This brings us to the overall concept: to wrap images of all lines of business in a single animated composition on the main page.
