    Web Design


The Convention and Visitors Bureau of South Padre Island in concert with Machete Inc. Marketing Agency contacted us about the possibility of designing a Sandcastle Days 2013 Event Page that they could use on their website. We figured this was a perfect chance to showcase some of our favorite techniques and to reveal some additional modern coding techniques that you just don’t see in force on the interwebs at present.

The site is a one page design and the links are anchor points through the site. The biggest feature to this site is the background.. not only does it use a parallax scroll functionality… it is a live video from South Padre Island’s media vault showcasing last years event. Everything about this site reflects the fun of the event and uses bold typography to add importance and relevance to varying topics. We even went the extra mile and built a custom javascript Event Countdown Timer.

We worked closely with Machete Inc. to produce the perfect site that the city loved. It only took minor information tweaks for revisions to get the site launched. Built using straight HTML and CSS this project took us a total of 24 hours over the span of 4 days – We moved on island time for this one!
