Website Redesign 9
Custom Website Redesign #9
2013 | Web Content Loading & Maintenance
Chuck Fultz of Ronningen Design was responsible for the front end design. Once the site development was well under way, I loaded some of the content for main template pages, formatting text and processing/placing photos. Toward the end of development, I took the lead on testing the site across major browsers and devices. After the site went live, I took care of design-related maintenance.
This site is unusual because the pages are displayed like a magazine. Content management is a challenge here because each page — and each column — is handled separately. The content does not automatically wrap. This affects decisions about paragraph length, photo dimensions, and so on.
I took care of the majority of the content formatting: loading text into the client's CMS, setting up pages according to the site map, and formatting headings.
Photos & Graphics
I also loaded some inset photos and full page images.
I processed and loaded most of the thumbnail photos for the main navigation.
2015 | Graphic Design & Content Management
The "magazine cover" graphics are set to change automatically each week on the end client's home page. I selected photos for a few month's worth of covers and then created the designs using the cover template. I loaded the approved images into the client's custom CMS and queued them up to change at the appropriate times. Below are a couple of the more interesting designs, where the photo content interacts with the magazine title.
