We Deliver – a 24hr project

AshleyAshley

I’ve been meaning to do something sporadic and creative for a while now but have never got around to it until now. I decided to challenge myself to build a site (wedeliver.papermashup.com) in under 24hrs from concept and design through to development. The site is a silly idea based on a simple delivery website with the twist of allowing users to deliver their precious package by an animal of their choice, much like we did in the war with carrier pigeons. I started by working out the exact user experience and quickly decided on having a single page site that has three steps, once you complete one step the page scrolls down with JavaScript to reveal the next step and so on.

The Design

Once the basic concept was established I started with a brand and logo, I had already decided on the name ‘We Deliver’ so I chose a typeface and style and developed the brand for the site. The logo and type very much influenced the tone of voice for the project. Minimalist, modern, with a simple user experience.

Visit the site

You can check out the site here. Im always inspired by the fun mini projects that Carsonified do as well as other viral campaigns like the work of Poke London. As a designer and developer I think it’s important to challenge yourself sometimes and it’s the best way to learn new techniques. I’ve never built an e-commerce site before not that this project is, however it gave me an insight into using jQuery to calculate the number of products as well as dynamically working out the exchange rate to show the total price in GBP.

    Hey Ashley!

    I liked this concept of 24hr project. You are doing some inspiring work.
    Regarding ‘we deliver’, I liked the smooth transition with guiding the user through step-1-2-3.

    Recently I also completed a project http://www.yoitsfriday.com [which took 4 weekends :)]

    looking forward to see more from you. just subscribed to your twitter!
    cheers
