Fourth Source - Flat design and build development by AWESEM

Fourth Source

Fourth Source is a news site for digital media covering everything from mobile and video up to data, performance and content marketing.

Fourth Source

The Objective

Fourth Source came to us with the clear objective of updating the site with an up to date look and feel in line with modern thinking of design and a site that would be future proofed against different screen sizes in the future.  In addition, they wanted a better solution for showcasing their authors, a more manageable content management system and have the site optimised for SEO from day one.

What we did

After agreeing the wire frames with Fourth Source we went to work on the design phase making sure that we had no shadows or shading or anything really that could be construed as 3D!  There were a number of iterations we went through with the client having input every step of the way.  Once the home page was agreed we went on to design the other major templates like the category and article pages with mobile as our first thought.  While our front-end developers went to work on the HTML we turned our attention to the back-end functionality relying as little as possible on off-the-shelf plugins and more on bespoke requirements that were ‘just right’ for the needs of Fourth Source.  So far the feedback has been great but why not visit the site and see if you agree.
