In early 2011, ready to ditch their antiquated Flash platform, Use All Five was asked to launch a modern Method Studios website with responsive design that would self-optimize for any device.
All that being said, we are happy to announce that with a little elbow grease and fine tuning, Method Studios is now a global visual effects company spanning 6 cities and 4 continents.
From the very beginning, we found that the main challenge was with the layout and not letting it get in the way of the eye-popping visual effects work. With so many images having to look great at any size, we had to maintain the quality at any scale.
Additionally, we needed to provide high quality video content, viewable on any device (desktop, mobile, and tablet devices). By custom configuring CDN through Amazon’s CloudFront and Symfony CMS, we were able to propagate multi-formatted video across the web to any device while ensuring that their site would remain fresh and focused.
And for all of you network admins out there, we were even able to serve up different versions of the homepage for Australia!
