As the 1-page site was only ever meant to be a temporary solution (even though it lasted us nearly 2 years) we have since replaced it with our new, more fully featured adn awesoemly responsive site. Have a look around.
Since we launched the new brand for Every Interaction in the New Year, we’ve been trying to find to time to get a portfolio site live. As is always the case, the ‘Shoe makers shoes’ are the last thing to get any attention. Knowing we don’t have time to design and develop a larger site at present, we took inspiration from some of our client work and decided to take an (slightly lapse) agile approach. The simplest we could make the site was one-page, and so we started concentrating on a concept that both communicated what we do and showed a few projects simply.
We went around the houses a little trying to nail down the style and messaging, but once we were in agreement we pressed ahead and today pushed live the single page site. It’s completely responsive and in-line with the current blog design and evolves the brand communications nicely form what we started in print.Still on our development list is:
- to make a wider responsive layout for the large percentage of a our traffic who have larger screen resolutions. Part of this project will be to move both the blog and the homepage into a centralised layout for desktop widths.
to advance the use of the travelling menu – intended it to have a final ‘docking’ position, and to add a mobile version whereby the section title is present in a thin transparent bar (much like the character bracket labels for apple address book)– Done! Make all the graphics Retina ready using a device sniffer and serving up higher resolution graphics optimised for the format.– Done!
After this list is implemented we intend to start growing the site page by page, adding fuller case studies to each currently featured, growing the portfolio offering to the point where we’ll need a dedicated landing page. We also intend to build some SEO optimised landing pages or specific service offerings, and create a client login area where we can display work in progress and also share portfolio examples hat we cannot display publicly.
We’re quite pleased and look forward to slowly adding more pages, detail and features to the site as time goes on. We’re enjoying working on our own material in an agile fashion and hope to continue to do so, growing our presence online piece by piece.
