The Copenhagen based artist Astrid Krogh perfectly utilizes pulsating lights to create an ever changing spectrum of colors that captures even the beauty of a sunrise. To present these artworks in the web medium, carefull attention was needed to craft a unique journey through the story of Astrid Kroghs works.
Ignite Studio implemented a complete custom user flow that takes the visitor on a journey through Astrid Kroghs universe. Scrolling the website makes page after page fade into each other on a unique interpretation of the "Single page application" concept. This ensures that Astrid Krogh can hand tailer her own story in the order it is meant to be experienced.
Power to the content editor!
Displaying art across a near infinite array of screen sizes and still keeping the most important aspect of the image in focus was of utmost importance! But by utilizing the flexible CMS Umbraco, Ignite Studio put the power into the content editors hands and saved many hours of tedious content editing work. Simply by uploading a image and selecting a focus point, the image would automagically be cropped into 4 predefined sizes that ensured that the important parts were kept in view.
Performant image loading
Loading a website with hundreds of high resolution images, the best frontend techniques were rolled out to ensure that the website loaded in the blink of an eye! Every image was Lazy loaded just before the user would see them at exactly the size that was just right for either smartphone, tablet or big screen. This brings down the load time, and make every image "magically" appear when needed.
