Assembly Studios.com Goes Live!


There comes a time in every website’s life when it’s time for a refresh. That time arrived for us several months ago. We get a lot of compliments on our site, but we felt collectively that it was time to move on. Our new website is, much like us, all about the work. Visually, it’s quite a departure from our slick, black look of old: neutral backgrounds and simple, well designed menus ensure that our portfolio is always the main focus. Here are a few additional features that make our new website cool:

  • The site uses a fluid layout, which means that it displays equally well across desktop browsers and mobile devices (useful since an increasing number of our visitors access the site from smart phones, iPads, and the like).
  • Even non-Flash users will be able to see animated content and galleries thanks to our standards compliant HTML/CSS and Javascript (this makes for better SEO too…)
  • Lots of great new work. We hope you like it!
Here’s a link to the new site – we’d love to get your opinion: www.assemblystudios.com

Drop us an email at daniela@assemblystudios.com to share your views. So, if that gives you food for thought, and you’re interested in refreshing your own website, give us a call. We’d love to discuss your requirements! 020 7426 2080
