For RATIO Architects—an innovative firm designing built environments and spaces—their website needed to be a testament to the caliber of their of design and show off their work. Orbit solved this problem for RATIO by creating a custom portfolio page with an easy-to-navigate grid-layout. Take a tour of the website and experience RATIO.
Talk about a design challenge! Orbit is particularly proud of this behind-the-scenes tool we built for RATIO Architects. It allows internal team members to quickly pull together meeting notes, photos, 3D animation files, PDFs, headshots of designers involved, related projects in the same market, industry research, contact info, and the client’s logo with a consistent overall look matching the main website. The hidden URLs can be sent to clients and tracked for success through Google Analytics. This feature was the basis for the entire modular design style of the site with interchangeable blocking of photography and purposefully breaking the layout into thirds.
Even though RATIO Architects is a multi-faceted architecture and design firm with many markets and disciplines, some people are only interested in one! Orbit designed and built a site that showcases their beautiful work with the option to customize the experience by type of market, discipline or category in work, people and industry research. Try it for yourself!
