Astute Building Certification is a building certification business based in Cairns. We worked closely with them to design their new brand identity; including logo, business cards and business documents. We also designed and developed their new website, which is a custom built, sophisticated, single page brochure style website.
The Astute website is based around beautiful fullscreen images, bold typography and novel content layout and presentation. It incorporates some advanced techniques to ensure the burden of large images doesn't degrade user experience by causing long loading times and broken layouts. We created a custom lazy loading solution to handle the large images, this ensures the site always looks great and that it loads incredibly quickly.
The site is fully responsive, having been thoroughly tested on a wide range of mobile devices and screen sizes. It is designed to work with all modern browsers, including Internet Explorer 9, IE10, IE 11, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Opera, Firefox and all recent mobile browsers.
The site is powered by Perch CMS (our favourite CMS for less complex websites) and uses Twitter Bootstrap 3.

To successfully achieve the final look and feel of the website, we had to use some interesting advanced techniques to ensure the site performed well and looked beautiful across a wide range of browsers and devices.
Some of the more interesting technical features include:
