Coming Soon – Web Site Makeover

Ok. We know the site needs work. When 6squaredstudios.ca went live, our primary goal was to make a functional online store to which we could point people who wanted our products. We achieved that goal but now we feel that the time has come to update the site and really put it to work. So we’re going to give the site a makeover. Over the course of 2015 we’re going to update the site with a clean, crisp colour scheme, a mobile-friendly layout and more. We recognize that our site looks a bit outdated so we’re taking steps to fix it up!
So what’s wrong with the current site? Well, first and foremost, the site is not mobile friendly. Mobile devices aren’t just here to stay, they’re rapidly becoming the primary platform on which we view the web. If we aren’t serving up a mobile-friendly site then we aren’t serving our customers as well as we could be doing. We also need to update the general look and feel; the wood-plank background, the scattered controls at the top of the page – all on the chopping block.
We want to modernize the visual appeal of the site and bring it into line with modern best practices so expect to see things like responsive design, flat icons and lots more pictures. The most important change on the way is mobile-friendly, responsive design. We want our customers to be able to view and buy our products, download documents (oops, was that a spoiler?) and read our blog directly from their phones and tablets. To enable that to happen we’ll be simplifying the layout with a more basic colour scheme, flat icons. At the same time, we’re going to spice up our visual appeal with more pictures and videos. So when is all of this happening?
As much as we’d like to roll out these changes right away, it’s going to take some time. We’re a small operation and we’re doing everything in-house. Add to that the fact that each of our three partners has a day job and contributes to 6 Squared Studios on a part time basis and our desire to make sure everything looks, feels and works correctly and we hope you’ll understand why we’ll have to take our time to bring these changes online.
So this year, we’re not only working on bringing you new and exciting products, we’re going to make it easier than ever for you to access them.
Happy gaming!
