Flat and Responsive Web Design

In France, the Chambers of Commerce and Industry (CCI) represent the interests of companies in a geographic area; furthermore, they provide a range of services to them. The CCI France published a new graphic design to be used by its 155 local CCI. One of them, the CCI Nice Côte d’Azur, concluded a contract with AViSTO in order to adapt this new image to its web presence.

Key requirements: a flat & responsive design

Flat design is a style of interface design which aims to simplify the browsing experience. It is focused on a minimalist use of simple elements, typography and flat colors, in order to quickly convey the key information, while still looking visually appealing.

This approach makes it easier to implement responsive designs, i.e. web pages able to resize depending on the device being used (computer, tablet, smartphone…).

The CCI France defined flat and responsive design as the two requirements for all the local CCI websites. This lead to technical challenges took on by the AViSTO team.

Technical Challenges

Keeping the existing CMS (Content Management System) tool used by the CCI Nice Côte d’Azur website, AViSTO redesigned the web pages and software code in order to make them compatible with responsive design concept.

To make sure the new code is optimized for any platform, a complete test plan has been implemented – cross browser (Firefox, IE, Chrome…), cross operating system (Windows, Linux…) and cross mobile operating system (iOS, Android, Windows Phone…).

In total, the project represented an effort of 10 man-months.
