Create a new website and CMS for Firesprite games studio which should build awareness within the development community, help attract the best talent and showcase their expanding portfolio of games. The site should utilise the high-quality art assets and videos and provide the client with the flexibility to grow as the studio expands.
We were provided with some initial design ideas prepared by the Firesprite art team which we expanded upon to fit the new brief and also to make them suitable for mobile devices. Large scale images and videos form the basis of the majority of backgrounds and have been combined with short pieces of copy designed to streamline the UX.
We based the site upon the Netlify headless CMS which would enable the client to have complete control of the content whilst making the frontend lightweight and fast. The client required a number of bespoke features within the CMS, namely the ability to switch on or off the news and social feed sections on the homepage and also make a chosen game ‘featured’ and therefore replace the general ‘Games’ section pusher on the homepage. We also gave them the ability to add new work/games projects, new job posts and knowledge base FAQs.
