ORCA launch new website for Icon Films

For over 20 years, the renowned, independent production company, Icon Films, have been at the forefront of factual content. With productions like Savage Kingdom which premiered on National Geographic and River Monsters on Animal Planet, Icon Films are constantly producing innovative, hard hitting productions that are instantly recognisable.

Icon Films were in need of a new website which reflected their ambition, size, commerciality, creativity, diversity, innovation and potential in production. The site needed to clearly demonstrate the success of the company over the last 27 years, as well as their future growth in the industry. ORCA were proudly chosen as Icon Films' digital partner, tasked with revamping their portfolio website and with reinvigorating their online portfolio to showcase their ever-growing library of productions.

Over the last few months, ORCA have been designing and building a brand new CMS website, which showcases the high calibre content that they are renowned for producing. The aesthetic and functionality clearly demonstrate and emphasise the ambition and excellence that filter into each and every production.

It was imperative that the website used a modern approach, which spoke the true values of the company, and stayed on-brand with Icon Films' current image. ORCA have worked with a number of film production companies, including Mechanical Mouse and Sounds Commercial, and so were really excited to work with another iconic Bristol brand on updating their website offering.

The new website exudes creativity and showcases the vast array of productions with a simplified user journey and initiative functionality. Users can also keep up-to-date with Icon Films' recent news and developments through a new integrated Updates section.

James Ewin, Creative Director of ORCA comments:

“Revamping the digital presence of such a renowned and accomplished production giant is no easy task. The team at ORCA were keen to get under the skin of the Icon Films brand and to understand what fuels their creative process. Through a highly collaborative process, working alongside key Icon team members, we have produced a new portfolio website which will stand the test of time and propel Icon Films into the next generation of film making and production. We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved and we hope the new website brings a huge amount of future success for this incredible company.”

We’re really happy with the final design, it’s been a pleasure working with Icon Films on this project. We can’t wait to see how the new website performs over the coming years
