As a freelance designer and developer, I was hired by Kay & Warburton Chartered Accountants in 2016 to design and develop a website for their company. I used 1and1 to host the site, and developed it using HTML, CSS, JS and JQuery.

Final Site Walkthrough

The Process

Phase 1. Understanding the Client

KWCA, a Canadian accounting firm specializing in accounting, tax and advisory services to the entertainment and media industry, was looking to revamp their site.

I was invited to their office to take photographs of the space and the employees. I also took this as an opportunity to get a feel for the environment and company culture so that I could reflect it in my design of the site.

 

I came to understand that their target audience is other companies in the Entertainment Industry looking for accounting, tax and advisory services. Therefore, I looked at other examples of entertainment websites, such as Nick.com, for inspiration to find that they mostly use colorful images, fun colors and modern fonts.

Phases 2, 3 & 4. Wireframing, Designing and Developing the Features & Interactions

KWCA was aiming for a simple and clear landing page to give customers a feel for who they are. Therefore, we limited the features to just: "About," "Team," and "Contact" on a single scroll page.

Feature 1:
 

Draggable Slideshow to Engage the User & Set the Tone

Features 2 & 3:
 

Information about the company and a scrolling slide show of client's shows they have worked on

Feature 4:
 

The user can get a feel for the team and access everyones' contact information.

Feature 5:
 

The user can locate the office on a map and then is given more contact information below.
