Site design had been done and hosting was already in place. We handled everything beyond that undertaking all the HTML coding and WP development for the new site.
This project was a close collaboration. Loggly are a very technical company which aided cooperation and enabled more transparency. We integrated with their development protocols and used their Github, working directly with one of their development team. The project required balancing close involvement and integration with our role as the technical lead.
I couldn’t have been happier with Human Made. Based across the pond from me, but forever connected, we had a great rapport and working rhythm despite the tight timelines. The project management was done mostly through the responsive nature and expertise of the developers themselves, saving us budget and streamlining the communication. I found myself struggling to conceive designs that would cause them pause, as they were able to handle anything I threw at them. I’d be happy to work with Human Made again, without question.

Building in flexibility
Loggly is a developing company which is growing and changing. We aimed to create a site that is flexible and versatile, providing a base for future modification. The site is structured so that all the style elements are stand-alone and can be moved, allowing the Loggly team easy options in modifying the layout of the site. The use of SASS and Twitter Bootstrap aided in the modular approach to the style sheets. The Loggly team have substantial in-house html expertise so the use of static html for some of the key visual pages makes it possible for them to do updates. We also created multiple versions of some of the templates to allow Loggly to undertake A-B testing as required.
A successful partnership
This was a satisfying project for us. Loggly were closely involved and were enthusiastic about using new approaches and products, giving us scope to create the optimum solution.
The new release and website went live in August 2013.
