Jaypan is our own company site. We spent days, hours, and weeks turning this site into something we could be proud of. It is meant to be a representation of what we can do, given the time, budget, and freedom to put together a site that we believe in.
When creating the design for this site, we wanted something that was clean, minimalistic, and elegant. We also wanted something to keep us in line with our location here in Japan, however, as our customer base is world-wide, we didn't want to be overbearing with the Japanese influence and just wanted it to be subtle.
This site has been built using the most advanced technologies to date on the web. We have used HTML5, currently the newest version of HTML with lots of rich and amazing features. We combined this with RDF, which allows search engines to better identify the content they are indexing, and allows other sites to mine data with ease. For the top page slideshow, we used the <canvas> tag, which is new to HTML, allowing for images to be masked on the fly, creating the diagonal split that you see.
And finally, we added Google Maps integration on our contact page, to show how we are able to integrate different parts of the web into our site, bringing everything a little closer.
We have done our best to try to make the Jaypan experience as smooth and easy an experience as we can, and we hope you like the results!
