When Michael from Communicating IT contacted us to build his new brand website and told us his whole idea, we got interested immediately.
A story about an iceberg and the underwater depths, an allegory about the not so evident depths in IT services and processes.
It was a challenge and a pleasure for our whole team.
The art behind the process
We went back and forth through a lot of ideas and versions for the illustrations. That’s fairly common with all websites but especially with more artistic ones. We improved things based on the team’s and client’s feedback. Below are some sketches and examples of the creation process we underwent during the creation of the site.
Love at first sight
Creating an impactul first impression...
This was a complex area, and we needed to impress the visitors.
From the art in the sky to the waves, everything was carefully illustrated and developed.
Visitors need it to be simple...
Ladislav designed this great navigation, re-using the sky illustration to generate an uncluttered background.
It's simple and effective.
Designing the Blog
Communicating IT wanted a blog. We wanted to generate a simple experience for the users.
The blog posts are both highlighted in the homepage and in the blog section.
Every project has its stories
We gathered some of stories behind the code. Click on the arrows and discover some of the needs behind Communicating IT new website.
The project was built using Jekyll as the CMS of choice, Vuejs, Animejs and CSS Parallax. Jekyll allowed us to offer the client a customizable website while the rest of the technologies used allowed us to create very complex animations for it.
From the start, the client knew the company needed to have a blog on its website to work on their inbound marketing campaign. That was one of the main reasons we went with Jekyll.
As soon as we understood Commit's vision, we knew it wasn’t going to be an easy project, so we assembled a team with Ladislav Prusenosvky, Maite Barberis, and Andrejka Arce.
Ladislav is one our lead developers; he’s the guy behind solving most of our complex development issues. For this project, he walked the extra mile and worked as a designer as well by gathering Andrejka’s illustrations and creating a web layout for them.
Andrea is a great illustrator, with a very personal style. She’s the artist behind 2nomads’ illustrations and most of our best-looking projects. She amazed us with her very stylish drawings of the bottom of the sea.
She was in charge creative direction along with me. She’s an excellent eye for detail and a talent for quality assurance. She made sure we aimed for the best during the whole project.
Ivan worked as a creative director and project manager for this project. Working with the client during the brainstorming and discovery processes and later on making sure everything 2nomads' team built was as faithful as possible to Michael's vision.
