By The Denver Egotist / / FriendsWithYou – a unique creative think-tank that does everything from fine art to large-scale experiential installations and interactive events to public playgrounds, directorial work, live performances, animation and multimedia projects, branding and licensing – came to Boulder web engineering company Quick Left for an update to the look and feel of their website. FWY’s previous site relied heavily on Flash to communicate their playful nature with sound design and animation, but the lack of Flash support on smart phones was a challenge they wanted to overcome. Additionally, they wanted to update their storefront to accommodate a growing customer base and ever-expanding product line. Quick Left’s challenge was to utilize standards-based markup to create an equally interactive and playful website that could be seen across more platforms. The FriendsWithYou site has three major components. First, it has a custom content management system that allows FWY to add and update content without having to know complex markup or code. The second major component is a highly customized Magento integration. Magento is a feature-rich open source ecommerce platform that allows FriendsWithYou to expand their online commerce presence. The third (and most fun) major component is the front-end markup which utilizes html 5, CSS 3 and jQuery to create a rich interactive experience without using Flash. Some of this was new territory for Quick Left and they’ve told us it was exciting to have a client who was as excited as they were to delve into uncharted territory. Ingrid (@electromute) and Collin (@collinschaafsma) will be at SXSW Interactive this week. If you feel like saying hello while you’re there, hit them up on Twitter.
