While being a simple website in terms of content, the desire from Sven for a focus on an eye-catching design and easy navigation gave me an opportunity to try some interesting features. Using push state ajax to load the pages I added smooth transitions while speeding up the load time. As a way of adding visual interest and providing context to each page, the title is displayed very large and behind the content with some subtle parallax to give depth to an otherwise flat website.

On the services page, rather than having a page for each service, which would be tedious to navigate between, or listing them one after the other, which would make the page too long, I created a sidebar menu listing the services that, when hovered over, switches the content in a quick and easy way. Here you can also see the custom illustrations I created for each of the main four services. They are done in a minimal, geometric style to match the simplicity but add a nice splash of colour to a website with very few images.
