PlayaDelCarmen

Helping you plan your dream vacation in Mexico

PlayaDelCarmen.com gives you the best deals on hotels, resorts, condo rentals and other fun things to do in Playa Del Carmen. I worked with the designers at Deux.is to bring their design to life. A mobile-first responsive design ensures the website looks great and loads quick no matter the device you view it on.

Provess Overview

Before this redesign, PlayaDelCarmen.com experienced huge traffic, and so a major factor to keep in mind when building the website was speed and efficiency. Also, people would visit the site from a variety of device types, meaning responsive design was a necessity

I used a mobile first responsive design approach to ensure quick and efficient loading of assets. Responsive images, icon fonts, and a custom grid framework and type system (with susy and SASS) meant everything looks crisp on all devices, file-sizes are kept to a minimum, and creating and changing templates is as easy as modifying a few variables.
