“If Sourcebits is going to advise clients on strategy and design with regards to cutting-edge technologies, we should lead by example,” said Sourcebits CEO, Rohit Singal. Sourcebits addressed the need for a consistent experience across every mobile device by taking advantage of responsive web design, which allows a website to adapt effortlessly to ensure a beautiful experience for users, by cascading information across devices, depending on their screen size.
“Responsive design strikes a delicate balance between adapting one design across different devices and platforms and maintaining a single consistent experience,” said Apple Design Award winner and Sourcebits Managing Partner, Piotr Gajos, “We combined our knowledge in both web and mobile platforms to create a solution that is relevant and effective to both.”
The site’s high-level aesthetic was inspired by Japanese design. “The goal,” explained Gajos, “is to create an experience of subdued, non-intrusive elegance where the user is presented with a design so mesmerizing it almost incapacitates them—without being loud or overwhelming.”
The site also takes inspiration from principles of world-class print design. “We wanted to capture the visual excellence of a top magazine, in a web format that translated seamlessly from desktop to mobile devices,” explained Gajos.
