Rail head blog post

Due to increasing demand for mobile content this website was built using a mobile first approach, not just in design but in the codebase too. All images are served up to the user differently depending on the device they’re using.

After launch it turned out that 60% of visits came from handheld devices such as mobile phones and tablets.

Style guide.

An evolving style guide

We decided to use an agile approach to launching the website which meant getting the website to a reasonable standard on launch and then iterating over it and adding new features.

It was imperative that a style guide was formed early on to make iteration easier with a consistent codebase and design.
