We recently designed and built a custom WordPress website for, Aimie Bene, our DJCAD Web Design Award 2011 Winner.
Aimie is a Textile and Surface Pattern Designer as well a keen photographer and artist.
After being shortlisted to the final 3 applicants in our competition we chose Aimie as the student whos career we could help support the most with what we had to offer as a prize.
Aimie was able to assign her £2500 prize to any combination of our goods and services which she thought would help promote her and her work.
Along with the website we also created a logo and business card set (opens in a new tab/window), a custom facebook page, custom twitter page background and got 500 business cards printed for Aimie.
The website is largely based around an image gallery which is used to show off Aimie’s designs. The gallery has 3 different custom layouts which we built, a vertical album listing, a grid gallery listing and a individual gallery listing.
Each layout pulls in a set of images from the database and the individual gallery also generates a vertical scroller powered by JQuery which allows vistors to see all the images in the gallery without it taking too much space up on the site.
The website also features a blog channel and Aimie can also use the WordPress content editor to change the content on her Custom Facebook Page!
We loved working with Aimie and wish her every success with her career. Hopefully the prize will help in some small way to helping her get the recognition and attention her work clearly deserves.
