The semi-transparent grid directly below the landing photo on the main page, create a smooth transition to the succeeding section, and show key company information in a primary spot.
PLATFORM
Skyscape is always looking for new energetic employees, so it was vital to provide a solution that would allow them to easily maintain job postings. A WordPress platform was chosen to support this need. The Blog was also an important part of the website, and WordPress was the obvious solution to address both requests.

The Blog, Agents, and Testimonials sections each smoothly transition into the next, enhancing the harmony created by the color scheme. A large map with all the listings on the Properties page is a convenient tool for house searching, specially requested by the client.
PLATFORM
We used Google Maps to show the property locations. To allow the client to easily and efficiently manage their property listings, we introduced a combination of WordPress and Advanced IDX & (the Canadian CREA DDF platform RealtyPress was chosen in this case).
DESIGN
We used warm and inviting colors, introduced smooth animation and hover scroll features, and an overlay hover feature that reveals more details for the property. While adding essential functionality, we gave the Main page Search Form a transparent background to keep the beauty of the cityscape image.

groove place

Duration: 1-2 weeks
Color scheme: Dark Blue
Sections: audio playlist, video, gallery, shop, schedule
Additional: media presence (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Vimeo, Youtube)
LAYOUT
Instead of having a gallery in 1 place, we decided to spread the images across the website’s pages. We showed them in sliders at the top of each page, with three images per page, to give each page a unique feel. The client requested many different sections, and in order to keep it clean, we decided to avoid background photos, patterns and colors, and kept the background white. All sections were made to be the same size, for viewers to easily distinguish between different sections.
PLATFORM
This website features Bootstrap-based custom design from scratch, without the use of any templates. The client needed to easily update concert schedules and the list of songs in their repertoire, but they didn’t want to deal with systems like WordPress. To accommodate this preference, the content in these sections is automatically generated using .xml files. These files are much faster to update than WordPress, and are easy to create for all kind of clients. HTML5 Audio integration was used to create an audio player.
DESIGN
Dark blue colors and rich shades of grey were used to create the atmosphere of a jazz band concert. Minor animation, for example, as in the Services section in the Home page) enhances the look, while avoiding chaos and maintaining the peaceful and laid back, jazzy atmosphere.

Additional: marketing materials (brochures and business cards), email set-up, SEO
LAYOUT
The sections in this layout are slightly smaller than the full width of the page, leaving some white space within the margins. This small margin makes the website pages resemble a post card, of something of the kind, in a combination with a slider. This creates a unique and neat layout that doesn’t irritate the viewer’s eye.
PLATFORM
WordPress was used for the client’s easy manipulation of the content, including addition and removal of apartment types that are sold out, and changing discount types. Google Maps was used to show various neighborhood facilities, such as groceries, gas stations, etc.

Warm blue and brown colors were used to create a the impression of a clean, luxurious, and attractive place to stay. White and light grey background colors subtly separate the website into different sections.

In addition to merchandise updates, the website also features a blog, and therefore WordPress was the solution of choice. The payment gateways include Visa, MasterCard, American Express and PayPal.

A minimalistic design was achieved through the careful balance of content-heavy photographs with and sufficient negative white space and light graphics.
