British Band Instrument Company


The British Band Instrument Company website was launched as an online brochure of instruments being sold to across the world, specifically in the Middle East. I added a translation feature, and made all the text editable so it could be translated into different languages.

After some research, I placed the navigation on the right rather than the left because people in the Middle East read from right to left. I also added images onto the buttons (using the “sliding doors“ technique) so that the user could visually distinguish the instruments. I used the sliding doors technique to speed up load time and ensured the site was usable on IE6 at a screen resolution of 800×600, as I anticipated that many users in this part of the world would not have fast Internet speeds or high-end technology.
