Sitescape Studios is a custom website catering to the Landscape Architectural Design and Service industry. This website showcases Sitescape Studios contracted and developed projects - both interior and exterior. Much like a hedgerow divides a backyard, the website uses horizontal sections to help distinguish the different elements and content areas. Bright and vibrant colors are spruced throughout the gray-scale site to help attract attention to areas of importance. The owners requested a portfolio gallery to highlight their architecture work (projects). We completed the design and development of the gallery by including pre-loads (AJAX) for a more satisfying user experience.
Sitescape Studios has an incredible portfolio and personal case studies for each project and client they work for. The owners of Sitescape stressed the importance of their gallery and how it coincides with direct customer results. The portfolio gallery feature is very important within creative/artistic industries. Before a customer will hire Sitescape for design and architectural work, don't you think they would like to see what can be done first? Reading content is a great way to learn about the service, but visually seeing the results of their labor/art is always the best way to show this. This was provided through the use of an interactive portfolio gallery.
Our developers implement AJAX for the quickest load times and for clean and smooth page transitions. Sitescape Studios portfolio gallery features AJAX for this exact purpose. The gallery images pre-load when the page initially loads the first time. Practically every additional click or load is instant. Since it saves the user time, AJAX provides the user with instant gratification and is beneficial in reducing boredom and saving user time.
