After years of planning we are finally saying good-bye to our decade-old website and developing a fresh new homepage with graphic designer, Daniel Kozma. An exciting process to reflect on and replan our achievements and aims.
The old millspower.com was designed by our friend Marcia Mihotich and served us since 2013. The design was inspired by a sketchbook and polaroid images. However, technology and time have overtaken us and it was time for a new system and fresh look.
In March 2022 we teamed up with graphic designer Daniel Kozma to help us develop a new website, that reflects our current aims and focus. As a first step Daniel created a temporary website (still available to view here), a one page scroll testing and teasing the direction of the new design: bold Helvetica text boxes, full bleed images and small ‘paintbox galleries’ arranged on a grid in front playful, unifying colours. The content focused on our recently completed St. Christopher’s Hospice CARE building, homes and community projects.
The new website will work as smoothly on desktops as on smartphones and tablets. On the technical side, we can update it with new projects and blog without the need of external help with coding. It will feature 21 projects, most published for the first time. We will add a professional services page and expand the News section to include updates and share longer pieces from our sketchbooks, written or drawn.
The process is a good excuse for the practice to reflect on both achievements of the past decade and future directions. We are excited to share the result with you and we welcome your comments, get in touch with us!
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
