Thomas & Friends · Site Redesign


Thomas & Friends

Responsive Website

This Thomas & Friends website redesign for HiT Entertainment resulted in a co-play experience with distinct stand alone sites for both Parents and Kids. Working with the creative team at Funny Garbage I focussed mainly on the parents portal, helping establish the look & feel of the site along with Creative Directors adapting the Thomas brand into a new era with a fresh modern quality. The Activities page provides parents with an array of various downloads, coloring pages, posters and more. The events page provides links, descriptions and imagery to inform parents of various Thomas themed events happening in their region. The Shopping page groups age appropriate toys into groups, making finding the perfect Thomas toy easy for parents. The websites were developed in HTML5 and designed to be responsive working well on desktop, tablet & mobile and was optimized to be localized for over 25 territories. The success of this design led Mattel to repurposed the website templates for Bob the Builder.
