Personal Project

This is a custom theme for a University lecturer’s blog. The project entailed elements such as web graphic design, wordpress theme creation and web support / implementation.

Site Design

The aesthetics of the design is achieved by using CSS alongside images and google webfonts. I used GIMP 2.6 to create the background header, buttons, custom search and footer images required to make the new style design. The mark-up is written for WordPress 3.2.1 and was hand coded using gEdit.

Web design skills used

Web design skills used WordPress Codex, CSS styling, image creation and SEO management.

Project Duration

1 Week

Conclusion

Overall I am very proud that Kim had asked me to design her blog, I am very happy at how the design has worked out.
