This site was built in conjunction with Liberate Media, a jolly nice and talented local agency. Upon request, I provisioned and project managed the creative graphic design element of the site, working with the talented Atelier Grafik, then built the site using WordPress by creating a custom child theme of Thematic.
Designed and planned by the lovely folks at the Madano Partnership, this site uses WordPress and a custom child theme of Thematic to provide a number of different custom post types, carousels and neat functionality to convey effectively their commercial offering.
This was an exciting project with a great existing client. The requirement was for a German-language version of the site I’d previously built for them. Here the power of WordPress and Thematic really came to the fore. It was a relatively painless procedure to produce a copy of the theme for the German site. Once that was done, this project involved management in equal measure alongside development. Having been involved in foreign-language website builds before, this was definitely the most painless.
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.
