Gary Platt – Website Design
Gary Platt Manufacturing has been in the casino seating business since 1996. The company produces seating exclusively for casinos including slots, table games, poker, bar-top, sportsbook, and bingo. Gary Platt was founded on the concept that a high quality and comfortable chair would increase the player’s time on device and as a result, casino revenues. By specializing in casino seating Gary Platt has become the recognized leader in performance seating by casino customers and casino management.
In September 2018, Gary Platt reached out to D4 seeking a website to showcase their products as the most elegant, luxurious and comfortable casino chairs. The quality of Gary Platt’s chairs is highlighted through the use of mesmerizing videos, bold imagery, and crisp sans-serif typography.
During the initial meeting, we determined that it was essential to improve the user’s experience. Gary Platt’s previous website was slow to load and required multiple clicks to get to the desired product page. All imagery has been optimized to reduce the loading time of the website. D4 worked to create a minimal design that features all chair styles (such as poker seating or bar seating) within a single product page.
