The project

This is a new WordPress design and development project.  There was a website already in place but it was not possible to edit content and it was not mobile friendly.  My job was to replicate the existing website design into a mobile responsive custom WordPress design so that EASV could reach a wider audience and manage their own content.

There are several different styles of page including the home page, blog layouts, landing pages with links to more pages and photo grid layouts.  Hundreds of images were migrated over and lots of image galleries had to be reconstructed, nearly every page has a gallery.  All in all quite a complex WordPress design.

The main navigation bar contains the key pages.  Clicking on one of these will take you to a landing page with further navigation in the sidebar.  This kind of drill down navigation is very straight forward for visitors and creates a great user interface.  It also translates extremely well for mobile.  Large drop down menus are not great on mobile devices, this type of solution is much better.

It is a pleasure now to see that they are editing regularly, adding blog posts and sharing lots more on social media.  WordPress is very user-friendly and these guys have had no trouble working with it, even on such a huge website.
