Global giants of the sign industry, Colite International has been family owned and operated in Columbia, South Carolina for over 40 years. The company’s streamlined process for producing quality signage programs is able to accommodate clients of all sizes, locally and internationally. Colite’s team of dedicated professionals come together to provide a closely woven net of services including project management, manufacturing of signage and materials, design, and brand implementation nearly anywhere on the globe.
With partners around the world that have been purposefully cultivated by Colite over the last 20 years, even projects with international reach are managed in-house from start to finish.
Even with such reach, Colite International proudly serves local clients in Columbia, including the renowned Moore Orthopedic Clinic and Nonnah’s, one of the most iconic dessert and coffee shops in the historic Vista area of downtown Columbia. Other clients that have trusted their brand identity to Colite include household names such as Microsoft, Ebay, and Old Navy.
With Colite’s history, global reach, and seamless process in mind, Elephant Ear went to work designing a website to effectively communicate their values and core messaging. The final product emphasizes the reach, quality, and depth of the company’s work while giving a nod to their hometown roots. The site is mobile-responsive featuring news, twitter, and calendar feeds on the homepage with many custom design features built in.
Elephant Ear created a company timeline to capture Colite’s milestones through vintage and modern pictures on the About Us page of the website. Visitors can click through the decades to learn about Colite’s accomplishments and history, beginning with early facilities located in West Columbia and continuing through their recent expansion into Hospitality signage.
Another custom feature of the Colite website designed by Elephant Ear is the interactive facility map. Found on the Facility page, it provides a virtual blueprint of Colite’s expansive facility with clickable links within the map leading to more information about specific areas of production.
One of the most stunning visual elements on Colite’s new website is the map of their global Partner Networks. While the cursor rolls over the map, a text box appears for each region where there are Colite partners. With one click, site visitors can access the specific locations of partners, installers, manufacturers, and Colite offices in the region.
