Continental Design & Engineering asked us to design a website for its quality engineering services — an engineering discipline which focuses on "the need for detecting and containing parts that do not conform to manufacturing specifications". The website, designed to be one of a trio, is host to Continental's Quality Engineering newsletter, and includes a spectacular blow-by-blow explanation of Controlled Shipping and Containment, plus a login area for clients.
Unlike design in almost any other medium, web design involves creating a usable interface, where a website's visitors must be able to recognize elements so that they may interact with the website. How easy that is for them comprises the subject of usability — the ease with which people can use a website.
In designing the Continental Quality Engineering website, we brought usability to the fore, creating an interface that's at once obvious and compact, and allows the user to "get where he wants to go" effortlessly.
