HTML, CSS, JS, JQuery, Sketch, Illustrator, Photoshop
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
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.
