single-page-website-Domo-Luno-Mechelen-1410

Single page real estate website on WordPress

For the project Domo Luno, which will consist of two separate buildings, on different locations in Mechelen, I thought of a single page split-screen website, making it a sort of double one-pager. The visual guide lent itself really well for it, and the initial ideas I didn’t like that much so I proposed this alternative idea. It makes the project stand out and gives it a bit of a wow factor through the smooth css transitions and simplicity of behaviour. Inside each project has it’s own page with in-page navigation […]

Sony-E-Commerce-Mobile-Journey

Sony E-Commerce journey UX prototype

To establish a better experience for mobile and tablet users, we, that is the UX team I worked in at Sony from 2010-2014, devised a prototype for the E-Commerce journey. Roughly translated it meant re-building the current store with a easier to use interface, behaving responsive on smaller screens and adding a lefthand navigation with a facteted filter search to make choosing between the various options of a specific category much more user-friendly. Improving user experience with the already established frontend framework and design guidelines. After drawing this out on paper […]

Axe-Less-is-more

Axe website

For Axe, the well-known brand of deodorants, bodyspray and stylingproducts, we were asked to build a new website, focusing on lifestyle, music and fashion. Information architecture was already done by HeadOffice, the actual build of the site we discussed with them, opting for full AJAX navigation, homepage videoplayer, multi-language, masonry layout, infinite scroll, contests with and without Spotify Connect, music player, and some nifty animation and transitions in navigation, hover effects and so on. Preferrably built with WordPress as backoffice, since they already were proficient with that. In a few […]

Pukkelpop Lineup prelisten YouTube Spotify Google Music #pkp15 chrome extension

Since I am a pretty avid music fan, a regular Pukkelpop visitor and a web developer/ux designer, I like my music as my technology, new, exciting and innovative. And working in webdevelopment and UX and browsing the web 24/7 made me pretty critical too on how things should work (for me). And if they don’t, how I can make ’em work for me. One thing that I missed on the Pukkelpop site is that I wanted to quickly listen to all the 200+ artists on the roster. And quickly, just from […]

Responsible Web Design – Talk WordCampNL 2014

In 2012 I talked about Responsive Web Design at WordCampNL, a methodology about which I was very convinced at the time, and meanwhile the rest of the world too. This year I wanted to take the acronym a step further and gave it a slightly different meaning, Responsible Web Design (or Rant on Web Design). With that definition I want to step away from the purely technical side of things, but focus more on UX, design and content and how they fit together from a user- and frontend-perspective. User Experience […]

WordPress & how to best manage specific content

WordPress is great .. but .. I’ve been working with WordPress for 6 years or something. And most of the times that’s a bunch of fun, and I always find a way to make something work, but… some stuff is still a bit hard to do (or I’m not aware of a better method). And sometimes, it’s hard to choose on which tradeoffs to make. With the arrival of Custom Post Types in 3.0 the Managing of Content in our System became a lot more powerful for instance, but it doesn’t […]
