This “Throw-Back Thursday” post is about LMT Investment Company’s website. This design went live in mid-2000 and they kept the same design through the end of 2003.
The claymation-style graphics were stock images that were sourced for their friendly look — as a family-run commercial real estate group LMT wanted a look-and-feel that stood out from the standard “corporate blue and grey with photos of buildings with lots of windows” design that dominated their local competition’s websites. Done in standard HTML with the Featured Properties information coming from a text file they uploaded once a week (exported from their in-house database). The home page news box was an “include” of a text file that they also uploaded whenever they had something new to say. We enjoyed the project and liked the final look of the site.
