A WordPress development project. This is a Photoshop design converted to HTML and developed for WordPress.
Beltane Band are a UK based acoustic Tyrannosaurus Rex & T.Rex Tribute band. They are not lookalikes but bring an authentic acoustic sound charting the career of one of the most influential singer/songwriters in pop history: Marc Bolan.
My job was to develop their design compositions into a WordPress design, which gives them a full content management system. They have the ability to add and edit the text and update image galleries. Plus add new event dates and blog posts whenever they need.
This is a one-page scrolling site with a blog. Some blog posts are displayed on the home page but the visitor needs to navigate away to see more articles. Otherwise everything is on the first page including image gallery and band overview, audio sound bytes, gig dates, contact details and the latest blog post. Social media links and Facebook integration allow visitors to engage further with the band.
This WordPress site was quite an intricate development project. The background colours and images needed to be overlaid to create the desired effect. The font is custom and is sized quite differently to standard fonts, so some careful work was required there to ensure that it displays correctly and fits the required spaces. A Facebook page box is included to encourage visitor engagement and Likes. Good solid calls to action persuade the visitor to take action.
“I would strongly recommend Tracey, She is extremely knowledgable and does a fantastic job with my websites, I will ALWAYS point my clients in her direction for ALL their development work enquires, as wouldn’t recommend them to anyone else!”
