Our design approach was very collaborative, as Nick had already mocked up what he wanted.
He noted how much he’d like my own website (this one) and so I allowed him to reuse some approaches and even a Â bit of code, as it suited what they wanted to do.
While it was a relatively simple job in many ways, that was great as it allowed a lot of time to get all the small details right and much time and effort went into the flow of the pages, alternate layouts for responsive mode, and image selection.
Ideas and files were shared via Google Drive and a progress report went back via email once a week. With the News, Events and Blog, it was decided to just use the blog feature for all these, and use filtered blog pages to display the different sections. There was no justification for an event plugin, and the solution worked well, adding another layer of consistency to the navigation.
