The Embassy of the UAE in Washington D.C. asked us to design and build a custom Tumblr blog page that was both innovative and matched the style of their other social media pages. The Ironistic team designed a custom Tumblr template for the UAE Embassy with 6 interchangeable background images. The custom Tumblr page features a floating header bar, custom sidebar, and beautiful post layouts. Unlike many other top social websites, Tumblr gives users nearly unlimited flexibility to design the layout of their page. We took full advantage of that flexibility to make the Tumblr page match the visual appeal of the UAE Embassy Twitter and Facebook pages while adding in many additional features and custom on-page elements.
Our second project for the UAE Embassy was the creation of a custom multimedia gallery to replace the outdated and inflexible gallery they used to have. Visit the multimedia gallery here! To create the gallery, we mimicked the skin of the Embassy’s main website in WordPress and installed a highly customized image and video gallery. The new gallery has made it much easier for the UAE to add new galleries, modify galleries, and event link to external media from their Vimeo page. The new gallery is integrated with Vimeo, YouTube, and other major video hosting sites. Rearranging galleries is as easy as dragging and dropping photos.
