Pursuit iPad Project

Lifestyle was launched at the end of April 2012. I was contracted to Pursuit for the five weeks leading up to this to bring a fresh approach to styling the information presented on many of the pages. The overall look and feel had already been designed in the ‘book’ style interface. Most of the results of product searches, customer information, stock supplies and sales was presented in the form of tables, when more information was displayed on the page than could be accommodated by the limited screen size, the layout became broken on many occasions.

I introduced a carousel JQuery based solution, changing the Ajax JavaScript to output div and span based mark-up. This was then styled using JQuery to produce compact carousels where the long lists of information could be scrolled through.

One of the trickiest page was the Advanced Search. The search was carried out in stages, where each selection was more refined than the previous, using such parameters as Company, Sector and Type for instance. The carousels were contained within an accordion, which showed the next section and reduced the selected sections as choices were made.
