So, in December I had a radical overhaul of my work flow. I began coding my own core framework to use when developing with Wordpress. This includes a good responsive navigation, a content slider section and numerous widgets for showing related content, latest images and more. It's been a big task - 12hrs+ a day, week after week. This has now been implemented and further refined on four websites, all due to go live around the same time.Find Out More
It's been a stupendously busy start to the year for me. I've got several great projects on, and I'm building them on my very first CSS framework for Wordpress. It's brand new, and looking great. I've got several custom widgets and some pretty advanced functionality that I'm feeling very positive about. Harrier garden developments is the first website being build on this new code, and I'm looking forward to launching it soon!Find Out More
So, I thought it was about time I jumped on the band wagon and tried some "parallax" scrolling. Typically, you'll see then when you scroll down a page and some elements of the page move faster or slower than the scroll itself. This flashy effect is used to add more depth to a page, and seeing as this new Christmas menu for Lemongrass is fairly minimalist in design, I thoughts I'd try it here. I like the results! I took some snowflakes to make the background, and then laid more flaked (with a transparent background) over the top.Find Out More
Early this morning Magus Antiques was launched. The new site had many upgrades over the old site, especially navigation. Categories are intelligently organised using lots of coding in Wordpress' category.php file, meaning a little maintenance for the site as admin as possible. The admin area also runs custom inputs which are available when adding a new antique to the website. Areas such as height, width and depth are not available with a default Wordpress installation, so several new areas were coded to accomodate the needs of the guys at Magus.Find Out More
