Creation of a modern and fully interactive website for Pallet Export LLC, EPAL Euro-pallets manufacturer and wholesaler.
Our goal was to demonstrate the high quality and durability of EPAL Euro-pallets, present its uses and familiarize users with the production process. We accomplished this task by creating a modern interactive website http://uapallet.com/.
The guideline of the project was to present the advantages of the product in a modern and unconventional way. We wanted to clarify the main characteristics of Euro-pallets and guide users step by step through the production process to explain them what factors affect pallets quality. On this website users have an opportunity to familiarize themselves with a number of technical illustrations, videos and interactive animations controlled with mouse scrolling. This way the users who browse the website not only follow the entire production process but also feel like a part of it.
How does it look from the technical side? All animation sequences were divided into individual scenes, each of them occupies the entire screen. The side menu bar allows simple navigation and playback of any sequence, so that users can view the animations in any order. In addition, we improved interface usability by creating a hidden menu that appears after clicking on the icon. The website was complemented with a new logo that will be fixed in users’ memory as firmly as parts of Euro-pallets.
HTML5 Video API
We used HTML5 Video API for video streaming.
In order to increase page loading speed we took the opportunity to use delayed downloading of video files. The "lighter" elements are loaded first, so that they are already displayed while more complex animations are still loading. As a result, the whole process is carried out gradually, thus the user doesn’t have to wait for the page to load, and start browsing right away instead.
