Ananda Media is an international distributor and producer of action and adventure sports programming for television.
When Ananda approached me to discuss building a new website, they arrived with a firm vision of what they wanted, and how they wanted it to look: a listed portfolio of extreme sports programs, each displaying essential program information such as audio language, duration, genre etc. a synopsis, the dvd cover image and an embedded trailer video.
We decided on a clean style for the website by using blocks of colour – the blue and green were taken from the colours of the eye of the Ananda logo – and large graphical icons.
A fixed header was selected in order to be able to easily navigate at all times, as Ananda wished to display all of their programs in a single scrolling page rather than use pagination.
I designed and built a custom WordPress theme for Ananda using custom post types to allow them to easily add new programs to their portfolio.
