It was an honor and a challenge to create the website of the team that FIFA awarded the title of “The best team of the century in the Americas”.
Over its 111 years Santos has become one of the most successful football clubs in Brazil. But it was in the 60s that Santos gained worldwide recognition not only for the various titles won, but for having revealed the young Edson Arantes do Nascimento, who later on would be known by the whole world as Pelé, titled the king of football and the greatest football player on the planet.
Due to the volume of hits and global reach of customers, we needed to develop a website that was intuitively universal, where images spoke louder than texts, easy to load on any device, dynamic, intuitive and that conveyed the greatness that Santos Futebol Clube from Pelé, Neymar and so many other stars have.
The design, technology and structure of the website need to accompany a champion club, and this was the biggest challenge: transmitting all its glory to a high-impact look worldwide. Every interface and resources used were designed so that the Santos F.C. was a reference for the other clubs in the best “follow the leader” style.
Each page of the website was designed to take the user on a true journey through the history of Santos FC, in an interactive and simple experience for everyone who uses the tool. A well-produced internal page results in interaction between the user, networks and all available tools that are interconnected to the website.
The greatest athlete of the century deserved a page compatible with his entire history, translating his achievements into a unique look, worthy of his title of “King of Football”.
Browsing through his biography, his merits, achievements on and off the field, as well as his beautiful trajectory is an invitation to a journey through the history of football, and this is the goal we achieve for each of our users.
