Marianne Bailey

Marianne Bailey - Product Designer - Start Page

A new website for British product designer Marianne Bailey. Marianne Bailey has been working for design studio’s such as Factorydesign (London) and currently works for the Yamaha Product Design Laboratory in Japan. One reason to launch her personal website was the ‘au Design project and Yamaha’ exhibition at the KDDI Design Center in Tokyo in July/August 2008. There she exhibited some of her latest cutting-edge musical mobile phone concepts, developed for au/KDDI by Yamaha.

The concept of the website is based on a play of questions and answers. Also a line is guiding the visitor throughout the site and stopping at each of her projects. A little bit like a visual work resume in a horizontal fashion. Her design solutions always start from a question which carries social relevance.

The site navigation works by playfully sliding from one project page to the next. A sub menu offers to ‘slide’ to certain sections of the site, such as works for certain employers, her biography or contact page. The site features also Flash video sections for certain projects, Javascript slide-shows and project descriptions. Some time was spend on finding a suitable visual style for her site, eventually lots of white-space and line-drawings which hint spacial design were used. Site concept and drawings: Marianne Bailey and Atsushi Imai.

The site required extensive Javascript implementation and programming with the Jquery framework. Also video editing and set up of Flash video on the project pages, as well as standards compliant-semantic XHTML and CSS styling.
