Because Those Buildings Won't Speak for Themselves

How a website redesign and effective storytelling helped a small building materials supplier grow to national prominence.

Challenge

HDG Building Materials was created by experienced professionals in building materials and architectural stone supply. This new business was pivoting to provide more products and more value to architects, building professionals, and luxury homeowners. The trouble is they needed to communicate their value to the premium building material suppliers they represented as well as prospective customers serving residential, commercial, and municipal development markets. Sparse website content and communications were preventing them from communicating their value.
