Website Development Collaboration with 1185 Design
Instart Logic was in the process of redesigning their website when they approached us with a unique technical challenge: Set up a Drupal Content Management System that makes use of their CDN technology for quickly loading high quality images, while still allowing their Marketing department to easily update the site’s content in Drupal.
We worked very closely with the client and their design agency of record, 1185, to get an understanding of the new site design and the required functionality. The design required several large animated images in a homepage slider. Time to first byte (or how quickly a web server responds to a request) was critical. While site design questions were being worked out, Busse Design developed a prototype of the rotating image functionality on the homepage. The prototype enabled the client and the design team to understand technical trade-offs with specific design choices and guided the team to a more feasible homepage design that met the objectives.
We further collaborated with 1185 to refine the responsive web design for tablet and mobile screen sizes. Our collaboration ensured that the website’s design adjusted in such a way that future changes to the design will inherit the responsiveness and the code is easily maintainable.
At the end of the project, Busse Design provided Instart Logic with a user guide and an educational session on how to update their particular implementation of Drupal.
