The Challenge

Design a new Flash-based website/portfolio for Openminded advertising agency that’s easy to update, has language versioning and basic iPhone-support.

The Solution

To enable language versioning all content is loaded dynamically via XML. Openminded also has a Tumblr blog where they post news and updates. In order to ease their workflow I grab, parse and re-style the RSS feed from Tumblr instead of having them enter new blog articles in two places.

The portfolio section is contained within its own window to separate the text-heavy information pages from the visually vibrant case studies. This draws a clear line between the information about the agency and the work they do.

This also enables you to pass a link to just the portfolio making it super easy to share the work in e-mails, on Facebook et cetera.

Final Words

I’m very happy with the result of this website. Both from an aesthetical and a technical point of view. Things like the Tumblr-integration and dynamic content via XML makes it easy to update. Things like iPhone support, easy sharing of case studies, fast loading and language versioning enhance usability and makes visitors enjoy their visit and stay longer.
