The LASALLE SHOW marks the finale of an artistic education and the transformation of young talents to professional artists in the larger creative industries’ ecosystem. As South-east Asia’s foremost art institute, LASALLE College of the Arts is the first in the region to own a Graduate Online Showcase for graduating students to sign up, create their own profiles and upload their work portfolios. They can showcase their best works, share and get public appreciation as the website is extensively integrated with social media plugins.
As a strategic agency on the leading edge of web technology, we understand that over the last few years the way people access the web has evolved. A user may access the web on a number of devices in a single day – so a website needs to offer an optimised user experience across different screen sizes. Hence we have designed and developed the LASALLE SHOW to be a responsive website that allows the layout to change, depending on what screen resolution the viewer has.
Responsive web design involves planning about what the mobile user will require first when visiting the website and then laying out the content accordingly. Thus the information may be presented in a different order for an optimised viewing experience across different screen sizes and devices.
These are the key steps behind the design and development process:
- Research/Scoping: Understanding the additional requirements for a responsive website i.e. What different goals will a user have on different devices?
- Wireframing: Grid structures and layouts for the website considering different screen widths.
- Look and feel: Style considerations to optimise user experience across different screen sizes and orientations.
Although responsive web design requires more effort, it is the way forward for web development. We are proud that once again, we have proposed a first-of-its-kind solution for LASALLE College of the Arts.
