Designing for an Established Brand

The bank has changed names in the 129 years it has been in business, most recently in 2017. The institution’s logo features a duck taking flight off the water, reflecting the bank’s name and its location in the heart of the lake country.

In their new WordPress website, Lake Central Bank wanted to expand its naturalistic branding and warm, welcoming culture. The Solutionistas created a design that capitalized on the brand’s golden tones, incorporating autumn lake scenes and river rocks into the design of the site. 

Working Within a Regulated Business

For Lake Central Bank, creating a beautiful, functional, and information website wasn’t enough. The bank also needed to comply with the federal financial and insurance regulations that govern their work. The Solutionistas added the required Equal Opportunity Lender and Member FDIC logos to the footer of the website as well as required disclosures to its insurance, investments, and lending pages.   

Developing an Accessible WordPress Website
