When we say that some of our clients become like family to us, Gearheads is the first that we list. We’ve worked with them since we opened Northward Compass, watching them grow into one of the most interesting and sought-after automotive and motorcycle news sites around.

The Home Page of Gearheads


In this particular version of their site, we focused on ease of use and reader engagement. We put the article photos up front and large to grab the attention of readers. When the readers are engaged with the article itself, we tried to walk the fine line between distraction and encouraging them to read more of Gearhead’s awesome automotive and motorcycle content.
