Last week a brand new website for Emblazon went live. This site was built in WordPress and uses the Woocommerce plugin for the shopping cart. The design was by MudGroup and the blend of clean lines and white space really puts a focus on the products.
Getting the product listing page divider lines to work was actually quite difficult. The site is fully responsive so 1, 2 or 3 columns of products needed to be accounted for as well as for an even or uneven amount of products. Its just a small thing but Launch is really pleased with the results.
A new website for East Grampians Health Services was released a few months ago. Their previous website was dated and they wanted something that was fresh and a bit special. Jamie from Digital Outlaw came up with a great design but it wasn't without its challenges.
The site is fully responsive and adjusts for Desktop/Tablet/Mobiles and anything in between. It was built in WordPress and setup in such a way that EGHS can build a page by piecing together different content. This gives them flexibility to structure their site however they want.
Some of the special components is the full page homepage splash, touch optimised scrolling images panel, popout mobile menu, fixed desktop side menu, expanding footer and more!
When you Publish or Update a page or post in WordPress the default
behavior is to load the same page your editing. I often find myself
wanting to publish and view the published page immediately. You can add
code to functions.php to change this behavior but I don't always want
this to happen. To solve this problem I wrote a simple WordPress Plugin
called Publish View.
Deutscher Associates Architecture & Urbanism is a site that was released a few months ago. It features a fancy HTML5 intro as well as some nice HTML5 transitions between pages. It moves around much like a flash site would and has the advantage or working on desktop and mobile platforms.
The website was built to work in recent browsers but its still very functional in the older ones. It uses CSS3 & requestAnimationFrame for the animations so its smooth and battery efficient.
The clean, minimalist design was created by Matt from Oak and Ink (http://www.oakandink.com). Matt requested many of the animations plus we added a few during development. Matt was great to work with an had a clear vision for the site.
A new website for ACC Victoria has been recently released. It was designed by Adam from Royale Blue (http://royaleblue.com.au) and built by Launch. Adam was a delight to work with and his design speaks for itself. It wasn't without its challenges however as the site needed to work on different devices and screen sizes.
The site was built in WordPress so that it can be easily maintained and built upon. It includes flexible content so each page can be built differently. There is a nice parallax banner that works on desktop plus other nice elements.
Launch Interactive worked with Cressaid Logic to create a new website for SteelChief. SteelChief has been the leader in design and manufacture of garden sheds, workshops, garages, pool sheds, aviaries, fowl houses, cubbies, dog kennels, pet runs, small sheds, timber sheds, steel frame sheds and pump houses for over 20 years.
We were initially contracted to create a simple ordering system (the build centre) for the online sale of their sheds. It quickly grew into a complex application and has recently been updated to allow for the purchase of customisable Cubbies & Forts.
Designed by Kate Dobell and built by Launch Interactive

A new website for Keilor Primary School was recently released. The fantastic design was by Royale Blue and it was built by Launch. Drupal was requested for the backend CMS and the templates needed to be mobile friendly which was a decent job. The polaroids on the homepage were particularly challenging. Don't miss the CSS transition on the logo as the page loads!
