Sky Fortitude (The Guardian)
- CSS Transitions
The Guardian, in cooperation with Sky, produced an episode guide for the Sky's thriller Fortitude, airing in Q1 2015. I was tasked with building a responsive gallery to show images and teaser information about each episode, within 3 days (including client feedback).
I implemented and modified an existing plugin for the purpose — Stapel by Codrops.com: within the timeframe required this was the best option - and suited the requirements perfectly. For speed, I used Sass for the CSS, and Grunt as the build tool. I also used Grunt to produce a minified, distribution-ready zip of the project, to aid speedy deployment.
At the beginning of the project, I spent time carefully forming the framework, to ensure that modifications could be made quickly, and deployed efficiently. As a result, implementing client feedback was quick and painless, and I was able to work directly with a designer during the process. The client was very happy with the final result, and the project was deployed to the Guardian site shortly after.
