Located in Bluff Harbour, South Port is New Zealand’s southernmost commercial deep water port, providing marine services, cargo and container shipping, and on-site warehousing for Southland’s export and import industries.
South Port approached us to create a slick, modern website to act as the first point of contact for their customers and prospects.
Following the success of this project, they engaged us to design and print their annual report and other marketing material.
We designed and developed the website for South Port. Key features of the design included clean lines, large high quality images and multi-tiered menus to ensure large quantities of content could be structured in a logical manner.
The development phase included pulling real-time data in from wind and tide loggers based on the wharves and displaying these on the website. Data from operational databases recording ship arrivals and departures is also displayed on the site. These features mean the website is a key tool used by port staff and customers throughout their daily activities.
We carried this clean, modern look across to the South Port annual report, utilising images and graphs to convey information in an engaging manner and enable the document to not only inform the reader but also promote the port and its activities.
“Market South has helped us to lift the level of professionalism in our brand image and we are proud to share the material they have developed for us.
We find the team at Market South a pleasure to deal with; they proactively find solutions and are always responsive to our needs.”
