Create DM website launch


I’m really excited to launch this site! I was commissioned by Create Digital Media to design their marketing site. Create DM are an iOS and Android app development company based in Tunbridge Wells, UK ( Great client! ). It was a lovely project to work with loads of room from creativity!

I created a concept around the phrase “The art and science of app creation” in which a series of a images are animated on the homepage to revealing an insight of what goes into creating an iOS or Android app.

Illustrations and Animations

I created the illustrations in CMYK to create of overlay effect that features in many of the them. I then carried this theme through the entire website.

I hired the talented Ryan Taylor to do the dev on this project. For the animations on the homepage I put together a simple choreography and Ryan painstakingly animated the illustrations using CSS keyframe animation. No mean feat!

Responsive Design

The site is also responsive for an optimal mobile experience.

You can check out a bunch of screen shots below and view the site here.

    Great job. I particularly like how each page looks like a poster in itself. I could just print out a page and put it on my wall. Pretty cool!

    @Brigit I’m afraid we’ve been a bit up and down with the server since launch, you should be okay now though. :)

    I love the responsive design when rescaling. Especially the HTML 5 on the animation. Great work!

    Copy and design are pared down to only what’s essential. Understated yet compelling. My eye knows where to go without a hint of strain. Really brilliant.

    Hi Mike,

    this is an amazing work. I love the consistency and the cleverness of the responsive design.
    If I’m allowed to ask: did you went mobile first on this project or did you started from the desktop layout?
