Laurie Stoddart Graphic Designer Visit Site
Laurie is a graphic designer based in Wolverhampton and approached me to take his website from a static design portfolio to a fully responsive design that works flawlessly across desktops, tablets and mobiles. We work together on a range of websites.
Being a graphic designer Laurie supplied all of the designs of each type of page then it was my job to build the components for the web.
The website is built on WordPress and uses the Genesis Framework for its SEO, security and structural components of the website.
The site features a custom homepage slider that Laurie can upload images to any time and add a link to one of his projects to advertise his work in a full screen responsive gallery. There is a user sortable portfolio section so that any one of his users can see the projects that matter to them.
Once you select one of the portfolio projects to view you can then see a custom individual page that displays all of the images uploaded to that particular portfolio item, a brief blurb in bold, additional paragraph text, social media icons and a 'Back to Portfolio' quick link.
If you view the website on either a tablet or a mobile, by default, the navigation menu is hidden and replaced by a menu icon. This saves space on the page for the vital information the user wants and then can access the menu at their own leisure.
