So with a new site, comes a new philosophy. Going forward, all Red Monkey Goo’s new websites, be it our clients to our own in house projects, will be responsive by default. We see a lot of businesses still pushing this as a added extra. A nice to have. In this increasingly mobile world we believe it should be standard.
Keep up to date on all the goings on at RMG HQ.
This is where we share our thoughts, ideas and sometimes just enjoy a bit of a chit chat.
Designing – Building From The Wireframes
In our last blog we took the initial project brief and created the wireframes that would guide us in the design.
The brief called for a clean design with a strong emphasis on product images. The goal for this stage was to build in the brand and create an attractive overall design that didn’t compromise the simplicity of the initial wireframes. Of course a few things were tweaked here and there and not all things translated directly from the wireframes to the design. But overall the main ideas were kept in place.
Wireframes – The Blueprints For Good Design
In our last blog post we discussed the conversations we had with the client, that resulted in the initial project brief. From then on we began designing and building a brand for that client. Unfortunately at this time we can’t reveal the brand and hence the branding around the client, so we are going to skip straight ahead to the initial wireframes we designed.
Choosing a spot between education and emotion.
With billions of sites on the web, where does your site sit? Here at RMG we always ask that very same question. Is your site educational or emotional? On the surface it’s a vague question and gets understandably vague answers and shrugs. But finding the answer to that question can dictate not just the message of your site, but the look, feel, direction, copy style, usability everything.
