Porsche, Volvo, Mercedes and VW all trust Couro Azul to supply leather for their automobiles. In fact, they have equipped 56 million steering wheels since 1998.
Now, Couro Azul (Portuguese for “Blue Leather”) needed a new website just as impressive as their numbers. And as its craftsmanship. Or its 80 years legacy. So refurbishing we went, creating a new graphic system and art directing the whole narrative. All while delivering a very moving website.
Unapologetically targeting the automotive industry, the website is built with exceptional care for detail and respect for the legacy of the company. We combined digital craftsmanship and storytelling to deliver a smooth navigation experience despite heavy graphics.
Auto brands needed to be genuinely aware of Couro Azul product quality while simultaneously impacted by the company's remarkable heritage, ultimately leading to a memorable experience. Now maybe you don’t own a car manufacturing business, but go and check it out. Just don’t blame us if you suddenly feel like a tycoon on a shopping spree.
The site is designed with a keen sense of elegance. The videos flow across the navigation without interruption. Sure, seamless transitions across the sections might go unnoticed but that’s kind of the point.
We also had a lot of fun digging through the company's archives and found great gems for the website headers. Hence, old photographs came to life and the company’s commercial registration came to unfold before our eyes.
Couro Azul’s new website not only showcases the craftsmanship of this Portugal-based leather company, but also its outstanding legacy.
We have a winner for February's Site of the Month, burocratik have beat off the competition with the beautiful Couro Azul. Here they go into more detail about their project.
