With the initial planning and scoping completed, we produced a range of static visuals to illustrate how the website could look and feel. We also created a set of mood boards and styles tiles to help define the overall style for the design before progressing to a more detailed browser-based prototype. Through an iterative process, we made all the big decisions to arrive at a design that everyone was happy with.
One of the biggest challenges we were presented with was how to allow clients to share their photos online securely whilst still making them accessible to all. Having thoroughly researched the field, we recommended SlideShare because its simple design and functionality provided a great tool for uploading and sharing presentations.
The front-end website had to appear very straightforward and simple to use, but the back-end needed to handle a series of complicated functions, integrating directly within the website.
