Orange Theme

Real estate website template

Inspiration

Freelance Wire is a place where freelancers, consultants and independent contractors can share their stories transparently and where freelancers can come to read and learn from those stories. Freelance Wire aims to be a community for freelancers in Africa

For who

To create an open platform where freelancers can share their authentic stories, and where other freelancers can come and read those stories.

Use cases

The result was a responsive, fast, and easy to use publishing platform. We made use of only one typeface and applied several hacks to make sure the website was as data light as possible and loaded extra fast.

UI Design

The design scope included; a home page, category page, author page, search, signup page, articles page and information pages. We also developed the brand guide which included colors, typography design, grids and a components style guide for common elements. We also implimented dark and light theming using the material design guidelines.

Tech stack

When designing OrangeTheme we had a lot of considerations to take into account. We wanted to make consuming content on our platform a pleasant experience that entices return usage. We also wanted to make OrangeTheme an open and free platform, which meant that we had to find the most affordable stack, without compromising on performance.
