In the last few months, the designers and developers at Shepline Creative have discovered, and fallen in love with, jQuery. With reasonably simple and straight-forward, lightweight code, there seems to be endless possibilities for exciting and vibrant designs.
Some of my favourite jQuery effects at the moment are:
- CrossSlide – some common slide-show animations, traditionally only available via Adobe Flash™ or other proprietary plugins. CrossSlide builds upon jQuery’s animation facility, so it is as portable across browsers as jQuery itself (that is, a lot!)
- Catch My Flame: Infinite Caroursel – excellent slideshow/gallery software
- jTabber – for tabbed pages
- Accordian – nifty accordian/show-and-hide for cascading content
The Bicester-based Gamages Accountancy Ltd chose Shepline Creative to redesign and relaunch their website. The new site, soft-launched today gives a clearer, more user-friendly look. The new site also integrates a Twitter feed from the Practice Manager and further developments and enhancements are promised over the coming weeks.
Work on this site involved using existing, unfamiliar web hosting and all the necessary problem-solving that goes with that territory!
The Buckinghamshire-based Greenwood Veterinary Clinic chose Shepline Creative to redesign and relaunch their website. The new site, launched earlier this month features about the team pages and online registration for new clients.
Work involved in the production of this site involved careful negotiation with the previous webhost to transfer the website, including email, to new servers, ensuring a smooth and continuous transition throughout.
