Website Highlights

Law firm website design case study for:

Coburn Corporate Intelligence

Project Summary:

Coburn Corporate Intelligence (CCI) is an international legal investigation service based in QLD. They needed a professional website that was on brand, and could also act as a central data processing platform. Thorn Creative built their original website in 2012, and continue to maintain, update and monitor the sites performance.

Responsive design, optimised for viewing on any size screen is a must for any business website.

Back Story – Legal website design, left to rot!

Coburn Corporate Intelligence’s first website was hacked due to out-dated software. With no current backups, their entire site was lost!

Unsure where to go, CCI outsourced to a freelancer to rebuild it. But this person stopped responding to emails and calls, leaving a half-finished (and badly made) website sitting on CCI’s public facing domain. Every day this was live was costing CCI in reputation and more importantly, clients!

With an immediate ‘website coming soon’ page made to reduce any interim damage, Thorn Creative got to work and started over. From the start we paid close attention to tightening up security flaws to prevent any future hacking attempts.

Thorn Creative has closely monitored and maintained the website ever since without a single incident in over 5 years.
