The GPT corporate site is a great example of fully responsive design. It was designed using the Foundation framework so it works very equally well across screens of every size. The site was the latest addition to the suite of GPT sites now running on Kentico EMS which include 5 of the 12 shopping centres owned or managed by GPT with the rest coming on board in the near future. Key features include the media images and document library sections which provide downloadable files to the public.

The new Axon Garside website was built by Silkmoth using Kentico V7. Axon Garside wanted a highly flexible and content-driven website, especially within the portfolio area. The new website has been designed with two equally important objectives: Firstly, to demonstrate Axon Garside’s skills as designers and brand specialists through the design of the site and a portfolio of work. Secondly, to be the central element in an online marketing strategy to get found online by prospects, convert them to leads by capturing their contact details, and nurture them until they are sales-ready with email marketing.

The Telstra Careers site is the primary recruitment portal for Telstra, Australia's leading telecommunications company. It includes integration with a third party job application platform, allowing users to search, apply and set alerts for Telstra jobs. The design is based on the strategy of encouraging users to explore and engage with parts of the site, that previous analytics showed they weren’t. The site uses the Masonry framework to organise content, allowing the user to quickly and easily filter pages to show specific content. Pages are tagged in the backend which results in relevant content being served up to users based on their job search query. Telstra staff can create their own blogs which the general public can comment on and there is also a dedicated mobile version, giving users easy access to job listings and applications.

Trade & Invest BC is the international marketing website for the Province of British Columbia. In this redesign project, Number 41 Media, under contract with CGI, conducted a complete user experience-focused overhaul of the original website. The goal was to more effectively connect with the site's key audiences—international investors and buyers as well as local exporters. By leveraging the Portal Engine and core components, and by creating many custom widgets, Number 41 Media not only provided an attractive and intuitive website for the key audiences, but also delivered a product that can be easily managed by the Trade & Invest BC team.

Since its inception in a suburban Chicago church basement, Steppenwolf Theatre has grown into the premier ensemble theater company in the country. By steadily adding educational offerings, touring productions and programming across multiple venues, they needed a way to showcase their greater breadth and depth. POP created an Ensemble section to highlight the people that bring great art to life. Each artist has an encyclopedic entry detailing their past, current, and future productions. The media link back to a robust Watch & Listen section that helps showcase Steppenwolf's expansive collection of artist interviews, photo galleries, video trailers and production stills—some dating to the company's 1974 founding.
