Homepage & Branding
The goal of the homepage was to clearly display the best parts of working at Hermes. We wanted to create a page that gave a real insight to the potential applicant what Hermes has to offer.

  • New Typeface
  • Redesigned Iconography
  • High Resolution Imagery
  • Clear Call To Actions

Technology & Frameworks
One of the primary considerations when planning the new site was the technology stack. The website had to be performant and accessible to the WCAG 2.0 standard. The final technology stack consisted of:

  • HTML5
  • CSS (SCSS & BEM)
  • JavaScript (ES5)
  • Angular JS
  • Jasmine & Karma
  • Gulp
Features
One of the more advanced site features was the implementation of a Google Maps API location finder. This allows visitors to easily browse jobs by region throughout the UK. Once a location was selected they could easily apply for that specific area via the sidebar.

Performance & Review
I carried out a full page speed and performance testing of the website prior to going live. With base compression enabled and deferring of JavaScript files we were able to achieve a GTMetrix score of B+.
