PhoneGap Day

Really solid yet simple conference website layout. I really like the big header area with the mobile device illustrations that scroll through/over the PG logo. Then I notice that the entire page scrolls over the logo. Neato! There’s clearly some love and care put into pulling this site together. If Garth is behind you know it’s there! Also Ski Day!

I wanna go!

From the Designer:

The PhoneGap Day website needed a refresh with the new PhoneGap branding. The header is an illustration of a collection of popular mobile devices that each display a portion of a flat, simplified version of our Buildbot. As the screen size is reduced or expanded it changes the configuration of the illustrated mobile devices.

I built the site using a custom React static site generator. It changes pages like a single page app, but each page is also generated for seo, quicker initial page loads, and deeplinking to individual pages. The source is all open (apache2) on GitHub ( and the site itself is hosted on GitHub pages.
