Fagforbundet web-site

The new website for Fagforbundet is a 100% responsive site utilizing cutting edge technologies like those provided by HTML 5 and accompanying technologies.

Even more so, the site is a visual treat due to in large part our awesome graphic designer which in cahoots with the rest of the team made creating a fast, responsive and cool site into really inspiring work.

The site being responsive simply means that it adapts to different screen sizes and in this case also to different platforms and input methods. If you're on a touch device the site knows this and gives your the optimal experience tailored for touch input, all the way down to how scroll works and how memory usage is handled.

Since we all know that traditional computers soon will be a thing of the past, we took special care to have the site perform and look particularly good on smaller devices like the iPhone. Making the site perform well within a bunch of different environments was a challenge, but a worthwhile one.
