AeroVironment CIS had clearly defined brand guidelines which helped immensely in the design process.
They had outlined colors, logo usage, and fonts before we began designing the site and those restrictions allowed us to expand creativity in other areas of design.
One of those creative expansions we were able to do was the implementation of animated SVGs. In our case, we implemented an illustrated version of AeroVironment CIS’ Quantix drone that flies across the page as users scroll. Not only is this highly entertaining and engaging, but the flight path we used also leads users’ eyes to the next content section on the page. We’ve found this to be incredibly effective and a great way to keep users engaged and visually lead them to the next important content area.
With well thought out designs and a solid UX strategy, the build process was seamless. Integrating the animated SVGs was a technical challenge, but nothing we couldn’t handle, and the results were stunning.
Building the site on .Net allowed us to create a fully custom website with an extremely easy to use CMS, allowing for AeroVironment CIS to have control over all necessary sections of the new website. This doesn’t mean that AeroVironment CIS was given control over every aspect of the site. With .Net we were able to create custom editable fields, restricting what an administrator can and cannot edit. This provides enough control to be able to add/edit/delete content, but restricts them from doing something that could break the design of the website.
