Bags of Luxury

This was an unusual project, completed over a short timescale from brief to go-live. My client had previously commissioned a London agency to build the site for her based on design work previously done, but was very dissatisfied with both their service and quality of work. I then stripped the website's assets, took a full backup of the site, compiled a list of reasons why the website provided was not fit for purpose and then re-factored the website as a child theme for Thematic on top of WordPress. I kept the best of the design and stripped away complications and unnecessary functionality to realise the design as a fluid, intuitive and attractive website that's focussed on desired visitor outcomes, and on tracking those.

Technically, the site involved writing lots of new functions in PHP, then just my normal valid XHTML, optimised CSS and unobtrusive JavaScript using the jQuery library. This site uses the Custom WordPress Menus for Thematic function I wrote and posted here.
