The making of the Chetyre Stihii website

• Process

We start by creating a plan. The company has six major lines of business, each of which includes a similar set of services. To make sure all the information is presented properly, we decide to go with the matrix structure, similar to coordinates on a chessboard.

Starting the search for the style of the future website.

Not what we need. The search goes on.

And on.

And on.

Thinking through internal pages. Due to the absence of quality photographs, deciding to use illustrations as main typographic elements. This brings us to the overall concept: to wrap images of all lines of business in a single animated composition on the main page.

Assembling a prototype to ensure viability of the idea.

The concept is approved, presented to the client and sent for drawing to the illustrator whose style is most suitable for the task.

Preparing a sketch with all the elements of the main page.

Since the illustration is technically complex, asking a consultant for help.

Redrawing the sketch. Receiving a new batch of corrections.

Redrawing again.

The client approves the sketch. Starting to work on the final drawing.

Deciding on the colors.

Working on details.

Each section of the website has to feature an illustration in the style of the image on the main page.

Preparing drafts.

Working on the pneumomail illustration.

Drawing a sketch and preparing the image for the section on patient signaling system.

Illustrating air movement in clean rooms.

Working on internal pages.

Each project page describes all stages of the project from early blueprints up to photographs of completed facilities.

Preparing a mock-up of the Equipment section.

After a while, deciding to discard it due to the difficulty of keeping it up to date.

Adding animation to make the main page a bit more lively.

The texts provided by the client came mostly as lists. Putting them through some serious editing before posting on the website.

Fixing bugs.
