Tofino Surf School
I appreciate your excellent website.Our client's client.
The best feedback—our client took the trouble to tell us how their client liked our work.
Re-built from scratch
We re-built the Tofino Surf School website from scratch.
Design decisions focused on fixing the broken things including poor readability and bringing the site up to date including making it mobile.
The main visual cues of the old site were improved but respected, allowing the feel of the original design to show through.
We automated the presentation of photos, removing the need for any trips to Photoshop—our client adds unprocessed, normal images and our CSS nudge-rotates and styles them to match the established design of the site.
Helpful in-editor style
In areas where structured data is needed, for example the components of a testimonial, we designed custom in-editor styles that automatically label themselves, for example
Our client can easily distinguish and enter data and the public facing result is a well formed and presented set of testimonials.
As with all our work, semantic markup was used throughout, making copy more readable for humans using screen readers and more easily interpreted by Google.
A mobile view was developed as an integral part of the redevelopment of the Tofino Surf School site.
As usual, we took great care to ensure the mobile view was as carefully designed as the desktop, with components re-designed for mobile specific use where necessary.
Our client was so happy with this new website project we delivered in 2014 that they chose us again when they decided to refresh their design in 2017.
[client]: I just received an email from a customer who complimented me on the website!
