Capes Shipping Agencies, a provider of ship agency, freight forwarding, and logistics transportation management, asked me to design and develop a new mobile-friendly website that will incorporate the new design direction that we created for their print material. Their aesthetic preference leans strongly toward minimalist design standards. Essentially, minimalism is about reducing the design down to the barest elements necessary for a design to function. By eliminating all but the most essential ingredients, the site functions as a testiment to their philosophy of “less is more”.
To make the site accessible to mobile and tablet viewers with varying screen sizes, the site is built as a responsive design. This gives the site adaptability to current and future mobile devises so that it will remain fluid and functional for years to come. To test it out, drag a corner of your browser window when you’re in the site to see the content adapt to its screen size.
