Mitsubishi Strada Triton

Loueva is a body care product to help minimize the effect of cellulite. It was a new product of PT Ratu Farmaka Prima. The company asked me to create a nice looking web page for this product as a powerful tool to spread the information about this new brand product. I helped them craft the information architecture of the web, design the site and code it altogether.

Project Challenge

Although it's actually quite a simple project (considering the specs), the project didn't run really well. The project didn't meet the quick deadline that I set. Normally, I could finish this kinds of website in a day or two. But it turns out to take about two months to finish it. Mostly because of I have to wait for the content to be available from the producer. loueva_screenshot
strada This site was specifically built as a product showcase and that product is Mitsubishi Strada Triton. The client was PT Krama Yudha Tiga Berlian Motors (KTB), it is the official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicle in Indonesia from Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) dan Mitsubishi Fuso Truck & Bus Corporation (MFTBC). They asked me to built a cool looking site which can really emphasize all the good aspect of this Strada Triton car. I built it manually with PHP without any CMS or framework. Since this site was not meant to be updated regularly, it doesn't need any CMS backend admin to manage content. With that in mind, I have the freedom to arrange any content anyway I like in a beatiful design. I manually wove the design alongside with its content, page by page.

Project Challenge

At that time, HTML5 and CSS3 weren't really ready yet for an actual website. The browser support was still limited. So I tweaked all those design elements manually with many images. Something that could easily be achieved nowadays with just a couple lines of codes of CSS/JS. This condition also became a performance challenge. I had to minimize the number of images being used, so that we don't need to use too much HTTP request which obviously hinders website performance.
