Bristol HR recruitment specialists Purple House HR wanted a complete overhaul of their company website. The site had been designed and built a number of years previously, and lacked a lot of functionality that was required, along with updated content that directors Tom Mornement and Fiona Vennbrook had been recently working on.
After meeting face-to-face with the client to discuss structure and content, the first stage was to wireframe some of the key pages to agree layout and structure. Wireframes were drawn up for the Home page, About Us page, Manifesto page and one of the specific director's profile pages.
Once wireframe structures were agreed, I then designed full layouts of key page templates. This stage also involved considering typography style and photographic imagery – especially in the banner header section of each page.
After full layouts were signed off, I then worked with freelance Wordpress developer Rob Wyborn to build the pages to replicate the designed layouts. With this kind of site design, there are inevitably slight tweaks to layout and imagery once the test site is up and running. These were broached, along with tweaking and testing of the responsive mobile view to make sure the site worked across tablet and mobile devices.
