Swire Hotels

Swire Hotels wanted to revitalize their website to reflect the uniquely luxurious hospitality experience they provide. While the main site was built using Adobe Flash, an iPad-specific version of the site was also created as iPads were a featured amenity in their hotels. Both versions were powered by the same SiteCore CMS instance.

I developed the iPad-specific version of the site. Using HTML5 and CSS3 animations, with Ajax data loading and touch-friendly event handling, I recreated almost all of the rich Flash experience. I also wrote the back-end XSLT templates that transformed CMS data into HTML pages and page fragments used for the iPad-specific version.

I also designed the Sitecore CMS “content tree”: how data was organized and captured in the CMS interface, with the twin goals of an intuitive user experience for content editors and ease of development and maintenance for developers.
