Description

Broody Designs is a consultancy offering advanced web development in PHP and MySQL as well as a range of graphics and technical support services. Because the company focuses on the back-ends of web applications rather than the customer facing aspects, they decided to contract out the design of their website's user interface to a third party. Hearfield Research has worked on several co-operative projects, providing front-end design and development skills and so was the natural choice for the website design.

The approach taken was intended to reflect the straightforward approach that Broody Designs takes to it's own work while not taking itself too seriously.

An essentially simple design, Javascript is used to rewrite the underlying css as the page is resized, which controls the sizing and placement of the various on-screen elements. It is also used in a bespoke menu system to alter the style of menu components, hiding and revealing them in response to user input.
