These 90 seconds of abstract animation are tasked with metaphorically illustrating Affino’s key proposition, how we work, and how our customers benefit. The vocabulary used also ties it into the Affino Onboard Campaign to a degree, although the individual treatments are quite distinct. The video is best viewed on the dedicated Affino Discovery Video page.

Responsive Design Image

We’re getting ready to move Affino to being fully responsive. This will be the major initiative over the coming months now that we have the auto-scaling cloud infrastructure in place.

Big Bang


There will be a switchover from the current way Affino page designs are created to a new responsive approach, like moving from analogue to digital.

We won’t have dual Design Centres in Affino at any point, it’s a one-off transition to the new Responsive Designs when you update to Affino...

Affino 7 Multi Format

For the first time, Affino runs great on mobiles and tablets. It’s been a long-term project we’ve been working on for the past two years, and it will be a year or so until everything is likely to be perfect across all mobile platforms.

 

For anyone working in mobile, it’s a minefield, and lots of decisions have to be made along the way. I’ve posted previously about how under-developed mobile browsers are, but that has largely changed in the past year. For the most...

Styling Preview

Recently a lot of Affino sites have stared to implement custom CSS. We’re going to make this both easier in Affino 7, and remove the main need for doing so at the same time.
