It’s been quite a long time coming, but I have just launched a new website for myself. The previous site served me quite well and lasted almost eight years (120 human years).
The goals of this new website are to:
- improve on the design
- provide better information to potential clients
- ultimately lead to more projects
- (whilst also being easier to maintain)
The visual design brings the site into line with a branding refresh I did some time ago.
On the technical side I’ve built the site out with a custom WordPress theme and CMS development. WordPress is a massively popular open source Content Management System and is increasingly becoming the defacto standard for many of the client sites I’m asked to build. My development efforts here will translate well to newer skills required for client work.
I’ve also paid attention to mobile and tablet optimization, creating a responsive layout which will adapt to many different devices and screen sizes. Like WordPress, Responsive Web Design is also becoming the standard way to give visitors a good experience regardless of when and how they’re visiting your site.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the redesign.
