New site on 7.1 with Fluid Engine- video heavy with coded elements

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://fashionfilms.co.uk


Thank you for taking the time to read this and special thanks if you have any thoughts on my new site that you would like to share.


We create fashion & beauty content & advertisements and are based in London. This is a portfolio site that hopefully will entice new clients.

We have had a 7.0 site for a while and decided to upgrade and use iframe videos rather than gifs to animate thumbnails for links to our films.

I am particularly interested in hearing about the following user experiences:

  • Load times- the main page is quite video heavy. Is it making everything drag?
  • Design- Is the home (main portfolio) page to frantic? Does the amount of moving content drive you nuts or keep you interested?
  • Messaging- Is it clear what we do?
  • Navigation- Did you find it easy to get around?
  • Suggestions- Would love to hear any thoughts on any aspect of the site. 
  • Any way of making it faster?

Thank you in advance

I seem to have a problem with some videos playing back in Safari.

The same videos work on Chrome & Firefox. It is a bit strange.

I was trying to improve page load times by swapping the link Vimeo films with lower-resolution ones. Most worked but some haven't.

Seemed to have minimal effect on the size of the page.
