Kate Pickin Website

Kate is a gilder and artist who was wanting a website for her gilding business, to showcase her work and increase her customer base.

Designing Kate's site

For Kate's website it was decided that it should be clean with a lot of whitespace as the photo's of Kate's work would then stand out. The horizontal layout appealed to Kate's artistic sense and makes the site stand out. This created a challenge for me, the menu needed to be able to hide and show the sub menu whilst keeping it below it's parent link; without using WordPress's conditional logic.

I managed to create the same effect in the menu with JavaScript whilst keeping the chosen style. The site was built in WordPress as Kate wanted to be able to add images and text about her work. The blog was added for Kate to inform her site visitors of future events and for updates on work.
