This website build has some interesting content with silent autoplaying video clips and a browser-size aware layout that fills the page (on the homepage). Underlying the content there's even more flexibility in the structures we made available via the CMS.
As part of the front-end development, we created a pattern library to showcase the available content structures and layout pieces. These pieces are directly available in the CMS for when they decide to add/update content on the site. They are also drag-n-drop sortable.
The pattern library demonstration site served us well internally for testing and was a good reference as the site build progressed. The code that powers these pieces is used directly by the CMS as well.
The end result is a implementation that matched the approved design well, yet provides lots of customization options so the client can continue to expand on the content and build the site out on their own.
