Cwmbran based Pyramid Hygiene are the makers of an award winning air freshener system and provide a range of wash-room, hygiene and waste removal services. A new website was required as the previous site was flash based and this was causing some access issues.
The remit was to take the existing content, add a system for managing and displaying testimonials and make sure the new site was eye-catching mobile friendly.
I spent some time with the old site. Partially to make sure that I understood the content but to also understand how its navigation worked – with a view to making it simpler.
Throughout the design process as test site was available to Pyramid Hygiene so that progress could be monitored.
For this project a new colour scheme emerged early on, and there was a trial of a radically different looking front-end – but it wasn’t right for the site. Sometimes you need to try something else out to reach a good destination. The finished site manages to boast and attractive overview home page that is coupled with easy to read more direct content pages.
We’ve also maintained a high degree of animation on the site, and exceeded the level of movement on the original site – although this time it is achieved with CSS rather than Flash; and this means to plays well with all computers and mobiles.
The final point is that the site optimises itself nicely on a mobile phone and tablet; and this is vital. As Google is starting to add mobile friendliness as part of its ranking process for websites.
