A case study
Charisma Suites case study
DESIGNED FOR DESKTOP, TABLET & MOBILEThe Charisma Suites project is specifically designed to work on Desktops, Tablets and Mobile devices. But that isn’t all. Because the website is responsive and cross device and cross browser compatible, it covers a very wide range of screen sizes, shapes and resolutions. It works on landscape oriented screens, wide screens, portrait oriented screens, mobiles, tablets, notebooks, laptops, tv, Mac, PC, Linux, Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, you name it. Besides that technical point of view, the website is designed with aesthetics in mind. Our goal was to make something fresh, something smooth, something that would let users experience the Charisma Suites vibe through their brand new website. There is no information overload and no User Experiences quirks. Τhe website is built using the amazing Wordpress CMS. That gives administrators the added bonus of a user friendly administration system.
SCREENSThe Charisma Suites in Santorini website screens have been designed using responsive technology. That means that all screens expand and contract to fit each and every viewers screen, no matter what device or platform that viewer is using to view the website on. All screens are parallax scrollable using full screen photography on the top and a parallax that partially reveals more photos as users scroll down. Thanks to the combination of eloquently designed user experience elements and the stunning images of Christos Drazos, the website aesthetics are of the highest quality. The Navigation bar is located on the top of the website and it moves with the user’s scrolling movements. So, for example if a user scrolls down, the top navigation bar remains on the top part of the screen so it is always available for the user. To make the experience even better, we have “told” the menu to change colours depending on the background it floats over. That way, it is always readable.
Mobile Phones (iPhones, Android, Blackberry)
The Charisma Suites has been made with Responsive technology that as mentioned before, works across all devices and platforms and is basically made of one front end and one source of content that simply adjusts to each users screen and device. The Mobile Responsive part of the website interface is optimised for mobile phone browsing, minimum cellular data bandwidth usage and fast download speeds. For easier access, iOS and Android users can save the mobile site as a branded icon to their mobile phone’s home page.
