Brief

Brief

For over 40 years, Monitor Audio have been at the forefront of hi-fi loudspeaker design, incorporating stereo, surround sound and custom install products all of which are designed at their premises in Essex. More recently, Monitor Audio have launched an award winning range of streaming products.

We’ve had the pleasure of providing our web design services to Monitor Audio since 2008, designing, building and hosting their UK and international websites. The sites are localised and translated into eight different languages and managed from a single content management system, so we were thrilled when they commissioned us to redesign their website for the third time.

What we did

What we did

Animation was a key part of the redesign. We developed a number of subtle animations to enhance the user experience throughout the site, but the main feature we added was a bespoke jQuery plugin which beautifully animates content into view as you scroll down the page.

To help users find a particular product or range, we developed a categorised search results page which makes it quick and easy for visitors to find exactly what they are looking for. We integrated search into the site with a full-width search bar that animates when it opens and closes.

We worked very closely with Monitor Audio to develop the product and range pages to ensure they are rich in information and immersive for the user, but at the same time not overwhelming.

We built a fully bespoke product image gallery that allows users to toggle speaker photos between grille on and grille off versions. In a similar vein, we created a responsive 360° gallery that allows the visitor to rotate the products in real-time.

"Enovate Design is an essential tool for us here at Monitor Audio. Dealing with them on a daily basis they provide a wealth of technical expertise, experience and skill to further develop our on-line global presence reflecting our need to have a website, which continues to mirror our brand ethos and establish us as a global leader in our market place. Our expectations are always met and often exceeded. Enovate Design's understanding and professionalism is second to none and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to others."
