New Feature Story template released for Guinness PRO14

by | Nov 29, 2017

We’ve developed a brand new feature article template for our client Guinness PRO14 which is now live on the site.

The client wanted the ability to run long-form content, such as opinion pieces, interviews or in-depth features from time to time but wanted these to look different to their general news content.

Our design and front-end dev teams set to work, researching key elements and then creating a creating a clean simple layout that really pops on mobile and desktop.

The template features include:

  • Various text display options such as blocks of standard text and blocks of featured text (for headings/quotes) with the option to set a background image or colour
  • hero images for maximum visibility
  • the use of parallax images for a seamless page transition
  • ability to curate content within sections for easier reading
  • the option to add multiple images as well as in-page ads
  • a progress bar so that readers can monitor how much of the article they have read

Using the PRO14 colour palette, the feature articles are instantly identifiable on the site with a gold highlight and by adding the feature article category to the homepage and news aggregators it means that users can filter their news accordingly.
