Ackah Business Immigration Law
Ackah Business Immigration Law is a boutique corporate immigration law firm based in Calgary with offices in Vancouver and Toronto. They work with clients all over the world.
I was hired by Ackah Law to concept, design and develop their new corporate website.
Modernize the look and feel of the firm's website and create a control panel that easily allows the team’s content creators to edit, publish and share content.

Leading the Way

Measure Twice, Cut Once
With over 500 pages, organization was key. Each needed to be sorted, categorized and displayed to either Corporate or Personal customers, or both. All this organization needed to be intuitive for admin users to add, update and move pages. The solution was to create tags for each page that automatically generate navigation, overviews, related pages and more.
Once the structure was set, the next step was to enable users to quickly and easily navigate through the site’s many pages. This was achieved with organized search, a sidebar, mega menu dropdowns on desktop and an accordion navigation on mobile.
Friendly, Professional and Helpful
The design needed to be approachable and accessible by Ackah Law’s varied audience. This is reflected in the typography, iconography, colour choice, photography and layout.
Content creators have the ability to set a custom testimonial, call to action, featured resource and more, or make their own from scratch. This allows pages with a specific audience to present the best materials and contact touchpoints.
Custom CRM Integration
Lexicata–a law firm-specific CRM–required a custom integration between the website contact forms and the CRM's API. This was done by writing a script that collects the user’s form data, formats it and sends it in JSON via an ajax call.
The Finished Product
Keeping Customers and Content Creators Happy
Ackah Law’s new website presents the firm as a modern, professional institution, while the backend allows team members to keep the site up-to-date with the fast-paced immigration law industry.(Click to view site)
“Ackah Business Immigration Law wanted to launch a new website - after 8 years spent expanding our old site, it was time. Bryce Kirk came highly referred and we began the process of designing, updating and launching our new look and brand over a few months. The result is even better than we could have imagined. We are very happy with the new website – it looks more modern and fresh and most importantly, it is user-friendly and my team can make edits to it as needed. I highly recommend Bryce Kirk for his talent, his exceptional technical skills, and his patience to ensure we get the absolute best product. Thank you, Bryce!”
