HMK Easy Edit Website on Tablet

Responsive Website tested on all latest browsers and devices

As with any web presence over the past few years, it has become increasingly important to have a site which works as well on mobile as on desktop.

This fully responsive content managed website that gives massive levels of customisation for the HMK team when adding web content into various bespoke designed layouts, that work seamlessly across Desktop, Tablet and Mobile devices.   



HMK Interactive Menu for Mobile and Desktop

Deep nested interactive menu for mobile & desktop

HMK provide a large number of products via their website, including detailed technical descriptions of many thousands of components. Making this information quickly accessible on mobile devices involved developing a deeply nested interactive menu, allowing users to drill down to the product they need. 

So this allows the user to expand subsections of content and still go to the main section, but this is all done in a way that visually maintains the simple clean design of the navigation.


  



Advanced Product Search on HMK Website

Advanced Product Search Functionality

Fully CMS integrated bespoke search functionality with enhancing results filtering.

In addition to the navigation, finding products via search was also a major consideration with searches able to be preformed both on mobile and desktop. Each search defaults to showing products available matching your search terms but you can also filter these results to show search results for the rest of the website.

As the site is fully managed in house via Duo's content management system (CMS), the search index is updated immediately when a page is updated. Unlike Google's search, this instant update means HMK can author content and immediately check it appears under their internal search.
