This has been an amazingly fun project, probably the most fun I’ve had on a site design yet. I’m very familiar with the site so I was able to envision ways to make some things work more smoothly, and design things to not get in the way of the reader. My chief goals were to modernize the site styles and make it look less like a Bootstrap theme.
Jon’s goals for the redesign were (again) to modernize the site styles, but he also wanted a color scheme to match the amazing new logo by Hagen DeLoss.
I worked on the styles using static pages. Once that was complete, Jon and I spent our evenings over the past weeks integrating my front-end work with his back-end programming.
This was a true labor of love. While I’m thrilled to see the new design go live, I’m almost sad that it’s over! But there will be more enhancements and features coming soon. And please, if you see something that doesn’t work properly or doesn’t look right, let us know!
Major hat tip to Jon here-- he was a fantastic client to work for during the design phase, and a fantastic partner to work with when we were implementing the design into the site.
