CONNECT IB 2014

 

As the spring was approaching Manchester Arndale wanted to renew their website look and bring it closer to current trends without changing too much.

Boring grey background was changed with pastel coloured gradients, that were supposed to change their colours depending on the season. Images of the models were introduced on some of the pages throughout the website in order to make it feel wider and more interactive by showcasing items from new collections.

Layout of the website was slightly changed and made more boxy and grid like.

New Manchester Style Hunter and Manchester Arndale Trends pages were added to the website, where centre's stylist Debs introduces new looks as well as finds similar items available at the centre from user images uploaded to Instagram.

All icons were flattened or recreated to be in line with the new look of the website.
