Star Content Studios are a full-service agency providing content strategy for major companies across industry sectors. Toronto Star Newspapers needed to create a microsite quickly to meet the launch date for Star Contact Studios.

As a new organization the Star Contact Studios required a new website to create their online identity. As users of WordPress on other online properties the Star Contact Studios wished to build a WordPress CMS website.

Requirements for this WordPress CMS project included easy to use admin backend, page rotating banner, and more interestingly the design requirements called for a type writer text intro effect for the home page.

Project Details

The template make use of WordPress custom post types as well as custom fields to ensure that the end user doesn’t have to have any knowledge of html to update all sections of the site. The home page type writer effect was created using javascript as we wished to avoid the use of flash. The typer effect had to look natural, pausing between letters and paragraphs. Once complete the typer effect would then have to fade out and be replaced with a company YouTube video.
