Website design and re-branding

Challenge

The new website needed the ability to be viewed across platforms and in many languages, and had to support the company’s new career site with an ambitious SEO and email subscription strategy.

Through a discovery process, K2 Digital uncovered key insights that assisted in mapping the user’s journey on the new website. K2 Digital user experience strategists worked with all levels of Kinross executives and stakeholders to provide strategic vision and and content planning for the future vision of kinross.com.
