We began the process by meeting with the client to discuss their requirements for the website. It was important for us to agree on an approach to take the project forward and for it to be successful.
In addition to being cross-device compatible the site features various user levels, fully social media integration and submissions forms. Some of the content used in the making of this site was Linux, Apache, My SQL, PHP, HTML5, CSS, AJAX/JQuery.
As a final product Crimebeat has a vibrant website that is clear in terms of presenting information, news and also have bilingual functionality for welsh speakers.
The design specification was to create a professional, eye-catching website to provide clear information. The website was built on a content management system that is easily editable.
UX – User Experience
The user experience was kept simple with horizontal navigation and a minimal approach to the amount of pages used.
