Featured portfolio items.
FireCask were given the brief to create a tyre comparison website using WordPress, that contained data from multiple sources (APIs/CSVs etc), with the additional requirement that the data should be accessible to selected partners as a REST API. This resulted in two separate websites being created, a front end website using WordPress (WhatTyre) and a backend website using Laravel (TyrePedia).
WhatTyre is a custom WordPress site, fully stripped back and based around a custom plugin built to interact with the TyrePedia API.
TyrePress is a fully formed CMS that allows for importing of various feeds, editing of data, user/group management and other features. With over 10,000 different products and 50,000 product variations, FireCask were able to implement all of this into a highly secure and optimised wordpress site.
We were tasked with designing and building a new reliable website for Special Guest App with bespoke functionalities. Special Guest makes it easy for anyone in the USA to hire talented local entertainers for events of all kinds: weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, private parties, and more.
At FireCask, we were able to improve the speed and reliability of the website, as well as the coding standards of the site. We also improved the security of the website and the onsite SEO functionality, SERPs and Information Architecture, whilst creating a new design with UX/UI accessibility principles in mind.
This resulted in the browser render time achieving a 0.6 second speed post launch vs 6.1 seconds on the previous site. As well as the main content load time going from 7.2 second pre development to 2.2 seconds. The project was heavily focused on UX and UI whilst ensuring all the standards of the back-end were improved on in such a short time.
