We have recently completed a website for one of our clients. Think Brain Health is an initiative run by an international multidisciplinary group of experts and endorsed by key organizations from across Europe.
With a tight deadline of 5 weeks from starting the design to launching the site, organisation was key. We worked with our client on setting some strict timelines to ensure the project was completed without delay.
The design for this site was supplied by our client within 2 weeks from initiation of the project. During this time, we set up our development server, so we were ready to start building the site as soon as we received the design.
The design was supplied in Adobe XD format. Adobe XD is a great tool which aids web development by providing HTML and CSS to speed up the build process and help the transition from concept to reality.
The site was built on the WordPress Content Management System (CMS), to allow the client to easily add/edit/delete content as required post-launch. As with many of our sites, clients often like to manage the site themselves, which also decreases any ongoing costs.
A mobile-first approach ensures the site also works well on mobile and tablet devices.
This site features an interesting approach to page loading. All pages on the site are loaded without having to completely refresh the browser. This means that attractive, smooth, page transition animations can be used when clicking links to navigate through the site. Adding this functionality to a CMS can be tricky as content and CSS is loaded dynamically from the database and cache so pages sometimes do not render correctly when clicking through the links. By using swup and modifying some of the CMS functions, we were able to get this working as expected.
