This project involved HTML/CSS rendering of PDFs of pre-written content, performing edits, formatting new pages, importing imagery, adding design elements, pricing tables, contact elements, refining stylesheets, adjusting alignments and spacing, testing and refining responsiveness, integrating MailChimp, and adding GDPR features.
This project was already using a selected theme which had lots of restrictions in content rendering (we build our own themes so your not locked into any one design.) By applying generous CSS customizations, we were able to achieve the look the AKA Management was after.
It incorporated a Slider, Service Description, Interfaced with a 3rd party Registration system, Product Descriptions, About Us Section, Testimonials, Product Links and a Contact Us page.
The Acne Lab
This project involved creating a custom theme using an existing website as the requirements (basically converting a custom site to WordPress.) Once I got the skeleton of the site functional, the owner decided to use a more established company. Still, it was a great experience and I learned a lot about acne!
It incorporates a true CMS (the WordPress blog) which serves content for pages through shortcodes. It was designed to allow them to make text updates to the site without involving a WordPress developer. The blog sidebar menus were context sensitive as well! Someday, I would love to continue a similar project to fulfill the design’s promise.
Data Design Resources
This is the previous incarnation of my business site. It’s design goal was to illustration the separate functional components for customer reference. I also wanted to include some “retro” features: tiling, black backgrounds etc. It has a WooCommerce shopping cart with some advanced features such as components and searchable attributes.
Jim's Home and Landscape Services
This was a website from an old business venture when I swore I would never sit behind a desk again (that didn’t last long – someday I’ll write about that experience.) It features a before / after carousel and a job estimator / scheduler. It never made it to “prime time” but those two functional elements are pretty cool so leaving it here for now.
