Project scope

The MD company is located in Germany and is engaged in the professional production of spare parts for engines of large vessels. They came to us with the request to develop a sleek, contemporary, single-page website that emanated trustworthiness and highlighted their expertise and attention to detail.

The employer provided photographs, video materials, and text content for all sections of the site, as well as 3D models in .CAD format.

Solution

After carrying out the research process: offering references in stylistic solutions (colors, fonts, shapes, materials, and animations), as well as receiving feedback from the MD Trade team, it was decided to create a site in dark tones with metallic shades, using bold typography and introducing 3D models marine engine components.

This combination of interface elements made it possible to create a feeling of reliability and professionalism, and the recreated animated (and, no less important, optimized for the Web) model of the engine assembly made it possible to show the depth of understanding of the process of creating spare parts and the expertise of the MD company. To enhance the effect, a looped silent video was also used with the process of production and design of spare parts.

An interesting feature of this site is also a 3D model of the globe, demonstrating the scale and geography of the company’s work, as well as an animated custom cursor with the color of iridescent polished metal.

Technology

In the process of creating the site, programs such as Figma, Blender, and Adobe After Effects were used. The site engine was the Webflow platform with the addition of custom CSS, and HTML JS code. To animate and integrate 3D models, WebGL technology was used, as well as the Three.js library.
