Busy lighting designer Jonathan Rouse required a clean and classic redesign of his ageing website to elegantly showcase his stunning lighting designs. In addition: speedy, quick-loading pages and optimisation for mobile devices including the iPhone and iPad – which are widely used in the industry – were key project requirements. Regularly working on productions on and off tour the client also needed to add portfolio pieces and news updates in an easy and simple manner.
On the technical side, the website we deployed utilises AJAX to seamlessly load page content – giving a faster, “app-like” experience. The layout is fully responsive, optimised for mobile devices up to desktop browsers and we also created an iPhone-specific web app. The custom portfolio system we developed within the sites CMS, allows the client to perform regular updates to the site himself. Finally, the homepage design draws together all of the latest site updates from portfolio, blog and twitter, together with a striking header slideshow to showcase his work.
