Project Description

Make Productions are a design and motion production company based in London, specialising in motion graphics, visual effects, animation, post production and creative online video content.

The Challenge

The client required a very minimal, stripped-back web presence to showcase their award-winning video productions that are hosted within a Vimeo account.

The Solution

Implementing some bespoke customisations of this theme allowed Pylon Design to strip back much of the afforded functionality of this responsive website. A filterable portfolio grid of Vimeo content allows the visitor to filter and focus on an area of the client’s work. The blog is the initial environment for posting news content that is simultaneously reposted to social media channels for maximum exposure. Groundwork and guidance with on-page search engine optimisation is maintained by the client for improved visibility in organic search results from relevant search queries.

Maintaining the minimal aesthetic, the website was completely rebuilt in 2018 to take advantage of a contemporary framework and improve the mobile-first user-experience. Numerous page speed optimisations, including a content delivery network and three levels of server caching are now in place at an upgraded, encrypted  web hosting platform.
