New Project: MacGuru Consulting V2


Just rebuilt MacGuru Consulting from the ground up and we’re pretty excited with the results. The new site sits atop a super custom WordPress build and follows them fresh and clean flat UI styles.

MacGuru Consulting is a Los Angeles-based company providing personalized, one-on-one training, support and consultation for the complete cast of Apple products.

To get people excited about Sean and his business, we employed a variety of subtle animations, full wrapper images, fixed and faded backgrounds, and enhanced scroll events. The same attention to detail was given to every element on every page, from desktop down to mobile. The idea is to keep users engaged so their inspired to explore further and learn more about Sean’s top notch offerings.
