How to be Insightful by Sam Knowles
Sam has completed yet another book which explores the ways in which a person can learn and harness insightful thinking:
“How To Be Insightful: Unlocking the Superpower that Drives Innovation is the new book from data storyteller Sam Knowles. It will be published in May 2020 by Routledge.”
A new WordPress site for another book in the series
Sam came back to us for a brand new website, similar to his previous book Narrative by Numbers. A new one page website outlining some important points and promoting the book. Backed up by some awesome graphics Sam supplied we were able to create a really engaging website. Full of movement and colour the How to be Insightful website feels like its alive and kicking!
Adding a little Insight ourselves…
Starting with the supplied book cover artwork we got to work playing with ideas. The textured green and star-filled dark, space-like background works really well. However, as this was to become a one page website we needed to think about optimisation and loading speeds. As a result we decided on a a textured green for the header but a flat green for the rest of the panels.
The textured feel will still come across from incorporating the awesome little graphics that Sam had commissioned for the book cover.
As the graphics that Sam supplied were so fun and unique we really wanted to see them in action! For How to be Insightful we decided to really push our CSS3 animation skills. Animating the graphics based on what they represent has really helped make the site stand out. It was totally worth the countless hours fiddling with CSS keyframe animation!
