We’ve had the privilege of working on the redesign of the website for a custom cabinet manufacturer located in Hawaii. Even though the website was relatively new the original design was lacking the style and elegance needed to showcase their exquisite cabinetry. This prompted us to come up with a color scheme and style that would catch the visitor’s attention and hopefully make a positive impression.Using JQuery as the backbone, we established an AJAX driven template concept that allows the somewhat limited content to load quickly and easily. Both a ‘tabbed’ menu and text-based footer menu were created using the smooth fade in and out actions of JQuery. The end result is a fast loading and visually attractive interface for easy navigation.
Additionally, we utilized the JQuery based FancyBox plugin for the display of their cabinet photo gallery. This allowed for thumbnail viewing as well as slideshow interactivity. It loads quickly and is a great way to integrate a photo gallery for easy viewing.
Here are some screenshots of the before and after:
