The best Freeway designed site?

Here are a few I’ve done, listed in the order I designed them. The first two were done with FWP 5.5, the last two with FWP 6. Thanks to members of this forum, I’m learning more about FWP every day.

And, with the help of Thomas, Caleb, Ernie, and inspiration from Justin, I’m now beginning work on my very first responsive website, which is a long overdue website for my own company. Hopefully, I can move beyond my comfort zone (design wise) because, as Ernie mentioned in a previous post, my websites are looking a little too similar. :slight_smile:

Oops, I forgot to mention Walter, Todd, Nathan, David, Marcel, Dave, and probably a few others. Sorry guys. My memory is not what it used to be. :slight_smile:

My two cents …

A few finished :

http://www.elreal.nl (single page layout)

http://www.valveco.com (about 6.500 pages)

http://www.vriendenvandeloopplank.nl (using PulsePro CMS)

http://www.zakenwijzer.nl (probably about 6 years old, an ’ I need this tomorrow’ project)

A few in beta :

http://beta.ontwerpzaam.nl/commpass/ (current project, not live yet)

http://beta.ontwerpzaam.nl/pkc/ (new project, just started, will have Expression Engine CMS)

http://beta.ontwerpzaam.nl/pap/ (new project, still fiddling with layout)

My own site (still) in beta :

Wow! 6500 pages? That must be a Freeway Pro record. Nice work Richard.

Richard,

I love the one page - can you tell me how they know to scroll? the links on top (?) aren’t responsive

Thank you Julie … they don’t, but people automatically try. And the site itself never was responsive :wink:

Thanks … it probably is the largest FW site ever. I remember how slow FW got at a certain point … very very frustrating I can promise you. Currently I do my small updates in Coda … don’t think this site will ever be expanded again, probably will be rebuild otherwise (cms+templates).

[Laughs] Good grief, Man … 6500 pages?! If ever there was a reason to use a CMS. Wow. You are a warrior! Amazing.

It started out to be an 8 pager in english, later on we added dutch and german (makin it 24 pages), and it kept growing until a couple of years back, when 8 languages were made available … all products were added, and more and more divisions were launched.

Very early in this process I mentioned that a CMS driven site probably was the most efficient way to go, but management wanted to go live ‘tomorrow’ every single time they came up with a new addition. So never I got the time to re-do anything … “let’s talk about that later”.

Currently the site is a monster … and last month I changed so much under the hood that I felt pretty uncomfortable launching it so I checked the site first with the ‘Integrity’ app … looking for dead links and such.

It’s been very good for my wallet, when you realize the hours that have been billed (and paid for), but as I said: it has become a monster. If they would have allowed me the time to do so, I would have rebuild the whole site around a CMS. In the mean time I still do the necessary changes and updates on a hourly rate … but I think next year I will loose this client due to internal development at the client’s office and their wish for a MIS-integration of the website.

Amazing. I’m glad it’s been financially beneficial for you.

IS there a way that clicking menu item can make it move down the page ?

I meant responsive as it reacts to a click - sorry I did not make that clear .
