On this project I was responsible for the front-end development. The site was designed by REAL DESIGN and in comparison to their previous website is a complete overhaul in terms of the design and newly written up-to-date, modern code. It is built on REAL’s bespoke content management system (CMS).
My aim for this project was to provide a responsive accessible website to everybody whilst still maintaining the overall visual style regardless of device or platform. The site is written using HTML5, CSS3 & jQuery with a mobile-first approach to be as compatable and adaptive as possible on desktops, tablets and mobile devices.
With projects such as these were I haven’t designed any visuals I find it really important and helpful that at the beginning I sketch out a rough ideal of how the site will look on different sized devices and then have a discussion with the designer to make sure we are both on the same wave length.
