Simpsons Creative was tasked with redesigning two sister websites, the websites are for two office buildings on a business park in Cambridge. The two websites followed the same design a strategy that needed to be implemented on the new website design.
The new website design needed to follow the office development Boucher created in the design studio at Simpsons Creative, I was given the opportunity to design the new website as well as building it a challenge that enabled me to work on my design skills vital to my development as a website developer. Taking the colour scheme from the brochure I followed a similar layout so that users are able to recognise the ‘branding’ of the office park when visiting the website. With some stunning photos available of the business park in particular building 1000 I made the images a centre point of the website with a large image slider at the top of the page – this enabled the website to show off one of the key points of the office development the attractive location and high quality office space no matter which page the visitors are on. the arrangement of the content under the image slider enables two columns of information when needed but also allows for white space or additional images on pages that do not have lots of content.
The website also features an image gallery that along with the image slider at the top of the page make use of my auto gallery script I created, this script speeds up development of the website because it generates the gallery and the slider from specified folders in the website, this script has been built in PHP and enables Simpsons Creative to implement these features quickly and easily leaving more time for working on other aspects of the site such as the SEO.
The website was designed and created as part of my work as a website developer at Simpsons Creative
