Rod Hannah Design
Rod Hannah Design is a building design and drafting practice based on the Mornington Peninsula.
A long-standing business, they had a website built many years ago that no longer suited their needs. Building design is visual, and their previous website didn’t make a focus of their projects – not to do with poor design, but that webdesign does change over the years. We view websites on a large variety of screen sizes now, and trends in website layouts (as well as faster internet connections) have given us more scope to make visual websites and use photos like never before.
The new website for Rod Hannah Design does just that: photos of projects are featured on every page throughout the website, partly as background images. Navigation is slightly uncommon, which was a deliberate move to match their architectural style: the content slides out in a panel from the left. The black panel on the left is also used for content on each page.
Along with their website, their logo was given a facelift; a streamlined design that is easy to read from a distance.
