Narrative by Numbers is a book authored by Sam Knowles, an accomplished and sought-after speaker for conferences on communication, marketing and data analytics. Sam was looking for a one page, responsive website that would help promote and sell his book and give an insight into what he can offer business teams. Branding and graphics were in place so this enabled us to come up with a design quickly allowing us to focus straight away on layout to give the user the information they needed in bitesize pieces without being to overwhelmed with information.
We incorporated some interactive elements supplied such as animated video files, GIF animations and a touch of CSS3 animation to give the site an extra element of life. Optimisation is key especially when video and animations are concerned so file sizes don’t inhibit the website loading speed.
The navigation for a one page website acts somewhat differently to a standard website with multiple pages. Once a menu button is clicked, instead of taking you to a new page, it will take you down the page with an easing motion to the corresponding section of information, a nice flowing and fluid functionality which gives the site an easy and relaxed feel. Scaling and responsiveness of the website is very imported for tablets and mobiles and so the content layout has to be taken into account to produce a balanced view on multiple devices – desktop, tablet and mobile phones.
