Rizakis is a well known company specialized in distribution and installation of all kinds of shading systems in residential and commercial buildings. The company needed a website to showcase their products and work. They needed to reach a broader audience in Greece.
How it was made
Mr Nick Rizakis, the company owner, approached us with the need to reach a broader audience through the power of the web. He wanted to show pictures of their work as well as pictures and catalogs of the products that he was distributing and installing.
After doing our initial discovery sessions and researching the competition of the digital space we decided to create a dark themed website that followed the brand color guidelines but we also put our personal touch by designing a flat design which was trending at the time. We've put a great deal of thought for his menu layout to categorize and prioritize information in order to be easily accessible and user friendly.
Being a very professional company we wanted to show the exact same professionalism on the website. Thats why we professionally edited all the photos that were added to the most prominent positions and also optimized them for the best quality and speed ratio. Innovative animations like the famous Ken-Burns were added in order to immerse the visitors to the page imagery.
UX Before It Was Cool
User Experience is what we are known for, before it was a buzzword. The client wanted to showcase product catalogues straight from the PDF of he companies he was the distributor.
After looking for the best solution to seamlessly integrate a PDF catalog to our website we found that ISSUU was the best solution for us since it had a very robust embedding system with integrated downloads which was something we needed as well.
We wanted to setup this website for success so we incorporated all known optimizations, at the time, like gzipping pages, leveraging file caching and code minification. Last but not least we added all best practices of on-page SEO in order to have a good visibility in Search Results
