03 Aug Creative to the Core
Not to toot our own horn, but over the years we’ve created some stunning, creatively-driven websites. Our personalised approach to each website means that we always take the time and care to create a website that not only fits with client’s idea and business requirements, but enriches it as well and compliments the brand. So, today BlueCoo wants to share a couple of our favourite features from previous projects.
Love at First Sight – Edinburgh Food Tours
When our client Scott came to us with the idea of a website for Scottish guided food walking tour experience through Edinburgh, to say that we were excited would be an understatement! He wanted a website that would portray the friendly, approachable Scottish spirit that his business holds at its core, so we took that and ran with it. 😄
We started with brand and logo design, then the website followed. We utilised custom bespoke icons, animations, graphics, and a bold orange and black/grey colour scheme to catch a visitor’s eye instantly. Our favourite feature of the website is the large bespoke animated slider that immediately establishes what Fork Around is all about. Its bold design and smooth animation captures the visitor’s attention and urges them to scroll on. It also has an easy call-to-action button that leads directly to an easy-to-navigate booking system. Two birds with one stone, as they say.
Comprehensive Yet Comprehensible – Modern Applied Psychology
Educational style websites can often include a lot of content, and sometimes it can be a real challenge to lay all that visual and textual information out in a way that is as easy to digest as a digestive. We truly believe that with the website for Modern Applied Psychology, we achieved just that while also ensuring we end up with a gorgeous, sharp, engaging design. For this project, we were lucky to work alongside graphic designers MS Creative and ended up with a fully functional, responsive, eye-catching website that shares tons of useful information in an easy to understand way, including an interactive informational diagrams, FAQ accordions, as well as a big beautiful mega menu to name a few!
One of the slickest parts of this design, in our opinion, are the interactive sticky sections on the course pages. Although little, this section serves a very important role of briefly but clearly laying out all the main course information and a call-to-action button to enroll in a way that is impossible for a user to miss, but at the same time, is not too distracting or gets in the way. At the top, it even features introductory video content that pops up with a video directly from an external video hosting platform. This means the a user doesn’t have to leave the site, but the video is not taking up precious server space. Not to mention, it’s fun to watch it follow the page as you scroll! 😄
