We were tasked by our good friends over at Solid Block to develop their brilliant designs for Ember into a full CMS driven website.
We used Vimeo’s API to make the home video autoplay when a user entered the page. Its also called on the popup videos to allow them to autoplay when opened and stop when closed.
We wrote a custom function to keep the video blocks at defined aspect ratio’s based on the screen size. This allows for best viewing of embers award winning video productions on their site without loosing space to black bars caused by wrong aspect ratios.
All of our builds are repsonive meaning they work accross various devices and screen resolutions without the need for a totally seperate website specific for that device.
The great thing about responsive design is that it is a simple cheaper alternative to an application whilst still having great usability.
