Legendary Website

The Challenge

When re-imagining their primary website, their challenge to us was simple: help tell the story of all Legendary properties in a fan-centric and visually driven way. We were encouraged to think beyond the usual stuff a fan might find on IMBD and let them explore deeper into the rich context of their various properties. Behind the scenes videos, interviews with directors and talent, pre-production sketches and other material were all on the table.

The Solution

You know what the most boring part of a web development project is? The CMS (content management system). It’s the tool that is used by non-technical people (normal humans…not web developers) to update the site once it has been launched. You know what the most important part of our solution was? The CMS. Most CMS solutions let you build web pages by selecting from pre-fabricated templates.

Legendary Website

The CMS we built for Legendary.com is a very special WordPress brew indeed. It empowers Legendary to leverage dynamic and flexible content modules and then arrange those modules in the formations that fit the storytelling need of any given property. That powerful tool welded to a mobile-first, highly visual front-end user interface yielded one of our most successful engagements to date.

Legendary Website

The flexible CMS allows for ever page to tell a unique story. Each film page feels like its own immersive mini site with articles, photo galleries, videos, social feeds and more. In addition we have built an intelligent recommendation engine which uses multiple data points to serve up relevant content at the bottom of ever page.

Legendary Website

The homepage features the latest Legendary content in a long, scrolling slideshow that takes full advantage of their stunning library of original artwork. The homepage is responsive and the CMS allows for the content to be seamlessly switched out for optimal viewing on any device.
