Responses by Marek Suchanek, cofounder and designer, Creative Nights
Background: Creative Nights is a Prague-based digital design atelier.
Design core: The straightforward presentation of our expanding portfolio. We got rid of all the unnecessary intros, pages, animations and transitions that distract users. At the same time, we wanted to keep some attractive, interactive elements, so the homepage has a spotlight effect that unmasks the secrets underneath; this also enables users to fluidly pass to case studies.
Challenges: The most challenging aspects were to get rid of the bugs caused by the libraries we used and performance issues. We used to have video content in the background of the homepage, but unfortunately, the site performance dramatically decreased on older devices, so we had to switch to static content.
Navigation: There isn’t any special navigation. We wanted to create a simple, fast system for users so they can focus on the content.
