Background

Move Smartly is a blog website that helps consumers make better real estate decisions. Focused on the greater Toronto area, Move Smartly provides a trusted source of thought leadership content through articles, reports, and guides. Besides the website design, SmartBug Media™ created the Move Smartly logo—a design which aligns with the brand qualities of its parent site, Realosophy. Unlike typical blogs, Move Smartly’s clean and minimalistic site includes various-sized content containers, thus creating interest on the main page while showcasing various types of content.

A Unique Look

We combined existing content (in reorganized categories) with a restructured user interface design and layout to create a better blog architecture.

Creating a Homepage

The newly added homepage uses a magazine-style layout that emphasizes visual elements and typography and carefully balances negative space and full-bleed imagery.

Designed for Easy Updates

The homepage was built to be easily updated and always look good—even if the person updating it isn’t familiar with basic design principles.
