C&A launches heritage microsite with McCann Metro

C&A launches heritage microsite with McCann MetroC&A launches heritage microsite with McCann Metro

Clothing retailer C&A has worked with Metro, the digital arm of McCann Manchester, to launch a new website as it bids to attract a younger audience.

Visitors to withlovesince1841.com can browse through C&A's history and win a trip to New York by designing their own garment. The winner will be the one that gets the most votes.

The site, which is integrated with Facebook, aims to give the C&A brand a more promiment place in the social space while raising awareness of its heritage.

Ric Hayes, digital development director at Metro, said: "The team at C&A is very forward thinking, so it’s been fantastic working with them. Together we’ve delivered a striking concept which is realised in a functionally creative site. We can’t wait to get started on the next project for them later this summer.”

Metro has now been commissioned to produce a further digital strategy for a new clothing range, which is due out later this summer.

Look everyone, a site designed in Flash, not HTML5. Flash has still got it.

A shame to see an agency such at Metro - who seems to be forever championing how cutting-edge their services are - developing a site like this in Flash instead of HTML5.

I would have thought this would be a prime project to show off their HTML5 skills - and what's actually possible with HTML5 now. Still very nicely designed and executed though!
