The Insurance Group’s New Blogging Site


The Insurance Group, the long standing and trusted partner covering all insurance needs throughout the state, came to Hub & Spoke needing a custom website for blogging with built-in search engine optimization.

The new TIG Compliance Curator was designed to help spread news about the health care law compliance to TIG’s clients in an easy to read and scan website. Using a simple color scheme with white space, we created a clean and simple aesthetic that matched the professional image of the Columbia based company.

The second part of the project called for us to update The Insurance Group’s search engine optimization relating to health care laws.  SEO work takes us deep inside websites, reviewing code, analytics and data, helping us find solutions for our clients.


We’re Here to Help

We believe your website should represent who you are and what you do, intersecting great design with user accessibility. We strive to meet the needs of each client no matter how unique. Contact us today to schedule a meeting or just to talk.
