Mobile Optimised Website
Engrave Me is a computer engraving, key cutting and embroidery company based on the Gold Coast in Queensland. They offer professional engraving for all occasions and items including trophies, gifts, pens, watches, pet tags, jewellery, badges, medical alerts, tankards, frames and zippos.
Having been in operation for over 20 years the owner decided it was time to establish an online presence and at the same time promote their stall at the Carrara Markets.
I designed their logo and website which included the graphic user interface, HTML/CSS site conversion and responsive optimisation for mobile devices. The website features a touch swipe slider [icons slide horizontally on mobile] similar to that seen on numerous iPhone apps. With the assistance of Anh Vu, the website includes decorative vector animations that were created using After Effects. To accomplish this these files were exported as MOV files and optimised as GIF images using Photoshop to ensure mobile compatibility. The most complex component of the layout was implementing the outer white frame as it had to work in conjunction with a fixed positioned marquee style banner.
For those typography enthusiasts the primary script typeface [used for the logo] is Ball Park Weiner, the block font is Ostrich Sans and elsewhere Aliquam Regular can be found in various styles.
