- Background
Fuse Furniture are a local digital manufacturing and fabrication workshop. The owner, Chevy Thom, required a simple, clean website as a point of contact, and to display information about available services and recent work.
For this project I worked with a graphic designer, Jamie Bannerman, to establish the look and feel of the site. The products Fuse create are very minimal, with curved lines and pared back colours, and the branding reflects this.
Avenues for future development include the addition of e-commerce functionality, a personalised quote form, and possibly a more comprehensive projects/case studies page when Chevy has more work to display.

Requirements were gathered by way of questionnaire and video meetings, followed by mock-ups using Adobe XD.
The site was built using Webflow, due to its design flexibility. A CMS was not required as the content remains mostly static. If and when necessary, Webflow's editor mode allows the client to change text and images.
The only dynamic element of the site is the projects page, which features an Instagram feed plugin. As the client does not yet have a bank of images of his work, we decided an Instagram feed could be a temporary solution. However, implementing this required the use of a content aggregator plugin, which is less than ideal, as it shows branding without a paid plan.
Since the website was created in 2020, Chevy has seen an uptick in enquiries via the website's contact form, and has been increasingly busy in his workshop.
