Better serving the ever-increasing mobile traffic
With mobile users in front of mind, we developed an easy to use mobile navigation that took the in-depth site information architecture and simplified it to work seamlessly on mobile and tablet devices. Serving the high-growth mobile traffic users of easy to digest content and site navigation.
Developing a unique design language focused on content
In the early stages of UI design, we took the Helvetica design approach to keep text content at the forefront of the interface design, this and a mixture of large vibrant images.
The design language used throughout the design used a combination of large easy to read font treatments, along with large striking imagery to meet the emotional needs and trustworthiness and long-standing history of IELTS Australia.
The need for speed
With a high number of user connecting with the new website on mobile devices, strong considerations of the site’s speed and performance had to be addressed and included in the scope of works.
By implementing a visual approach that was not download intensive, we could deploy technics that minimised the load time of the site across all mobile and desktop devices and increase user engagement and page impressions.
“As a marketer, I’ve worked with dozens of agencies and contractors. Most will take a brief and deliver no more than what’s expected. Others, will unravel your problem and find solutions you never knew existed. The guys at Digital Republiq will do just that.
Ben and Blaz are more than just a web agency to us, they’re our chief designers, problem solvers and a part of our team. Over the past three years, we’ve delivered multiple websites and worked on new product development together.
