HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, & PHP
Underwired is London's longest-standing digital CRM agency. Lead by some of the industry's most heavyweight individuals, their latest website was developed and released at the very start of 2012.
Designs and a detailed schematics were provided by the client, making the build itself fairly straightforward. The site features a large hero slider to show off latest clients and big projects, whilst the main content structure is split down into individual slides within a jQuery and CSS3 vertical accordion. With desktop structure set at a fixed-width, the content becomes fluid-width at narrower screen sizes. The layout is carefully optimised for smaller screens with items like phone numbers made more prominent and some of the heavier assets (such as slider images) removed to optimise the page-load times on slower networks.
When first discussing the project, the client made clear that they were aiming for a pixel-perfect, 'silky smooth' implementation with fallbacks for non-JS users and those still using browsers as far back as IE6. The resulting project matched these expectations and - with their staff now controlling the site's content - continues to meet their requirements.
