Our Eco-design Approach
Our visual identity is an extension of our commitment to sustainability. Its environmental impact was taken into account at all levels, from branding strategy to web and print applications.
ARCHIMED reduced the environmental impact of its website by focusing on 3 key drivers: Content, Design, and Code.
We carefully selected meaningful visuals and ensured they were not purely decorative. The ones we ended up using were compressed as much as possible. For illustrations, we used the .svg format (its code form makes it lighter than most formats).
We used colors that save power. Since white is the most power-consuming color, we used off-whites (darker shades of white) on our page’s backgrounds. We reduced the number of colors on our pictures and illustrations (our logo only has one color). We also reduced the number of server requests by only using one font.
We added animations only when it was useful for navigation and access to information. To reduce exchanges between users and servers, we limited the number of stylesheets and scripts for the layout of HTML elements. We also reduced page depth and weight by loading specific content (videos, podcasts, old articles etc.) only when users click on them.
