Cycling Australia launches initiative with Polymer designJuly 1, 2015
Cycling Australia has launched an initiative to encourage kids across the country to have fun riding bikes!
Let’s Ride is a national program designed by Cycling Australia to educate primary age children to ride bicycles with confidence and safety.
To reflect the fun learning experience, Digital Tsunami was commissioned to develop a complex interactive solution, presented in a bright and colourful interface.
This responsive site was one of the first in the world, designed in Polymer 1.0.
As a dynamic front-end design tool, Polymer is cutting edge technology; and a powerful successor to HTML5 and Flash.
Polymer has been utilised to create a bold, simple, dynamic site. The simplicity and engaging dynamism of the colourful ‘Mondrianesque’ design, conceals a highly complex backend, integrating a database (comprising program, location, session and attendee information); secure interfaces (for program administrators, schools, instructors to manage the programs, and for parents to monitor participant’s progress); and an interactive public site for location-based searches.
The responsive Let’s Ride site also features: full-screen expanding panels; dynamic movement; integrated video; online registration forms with secure e.commerce; and an comprehensive Intranet for administrators, instructors and parents.
The Let’s Ride online project was a collaboration between Cycling Australia, strategic marketing consultant Sam Trattles of The Other Side of the Table, graphic iconography and components supplied by Elite Sports, and Digital Tsunami’s crack Polymer design, database and development team: Paul, Yan, Natalia, Rasch and Heather.
A ‘triple tier’ approach was used to innoculate design, functionality and database development, so that modifications to any one of these did not impact on the others.
Digital Tsunami has developed numerous websites across the whole spectrum of the education and training sector: pre-primary, primary, secondary, tertiary, technical training and further education.
All websites developed by Digital Tsunami are built with responsive design. The mobile search criteria of the latest Google algorithm and the unceasing ascent of all statistics related to mobile device usage, ensure that a responsive site is mandatory for all corporations and organisations.
