Project

Director of photography and lighting cameraman, Craig McKirdy, originally approached us in 2013. He asked us to assist him in creating a digital presence that would showcase his work and list his recent film and television credits. 

Our solution was to opt for a one-page site that was visually rich, and featured his showreel and stills from it. In addition we developed branding for Craig based on a photograph of a clapperboard, that he gave us and applied that to printed business cards.

Recently Craig updated his showreel and asked for our assistance once again. We’ve redesigned and rebuilt his site from the ground up, ensuring that it’s fully-responsive and works on all devices. However we’ve retained the simplicity of the original design, i.e. a single-page site containing bold still images of Craig’s work.

What we discovered…

We’re becoming quite adept at using Adobe Muse to develop small sites, like Craig’s, for various clients. The ability to show and hide elements, at different browser widths, enable us to employ multiple navigation systems that only appear when viewed on certain devices.

For this site we created a simple mobile menu to enable smart phone users to quickly jump down to specific sections of the page. We also set the style of the menu to stretch the full width of the screen.

However we soon discovered that, although the parent menu item was responsive and stretched across the full browser width, the child items of the menu weren't. We contacted Adobe to double-check our finding, and they confirmed that there was a slight technical glitch with their app that they would look into. 

To make other Adobe Muse users aware of this particular technical problem, we also reported it in an appropriate thread on the Adobe Forums page. As always, we like to share information that we think will be useful and of benefit to others.
