Build­ing a team full of tal­ented peo­ple is vi­tal to us. Lead­ing on from the suc­cesses we have had with paid place­ment stu­dents we wanted to cre­ate a web­site that shows what we can of­fer with our academy. We knew this was an op­por­tu­nity to try some new things and have some fun with it.

Run­ning with the cir­cus theme we cre­ated four 3D an­i­mated low-poly cir­cus char­ac­ters to help de­liver our key mes­sag­ing. Each char­ac­ter has the po­ten­tial to be a fully formed cir­cus per­former but just needs some help to bring the best out of them.

We set about us­ing in­ter­est­ing tran­si­tions be­tween the pages, nice ty­pog­ra­phy and some bright colours. The fact that this project is for us, rather than a client lets us push the boat out and ex­per­i­ment with some tech­niques that you wouldn’t usu­ally get away with or risk.

One of the main challenges of the site, which took up quite a lot of our time, was the best way of dis­play­ing the 3D an­i­ma­tions that worked on all de­vices. In the end, we used Can­vas to power the sprites be­hind it de­liv­er­ing dif­fer­ent files and sizes de­pend­ing on what de­vice you’re on. A mo­bile user isn’t go­ing to need large, high-res an­i­ma­tions on a smaller screen. This helps with over­all file size giv­ing a smoother ex­pe­ri­ence.
