This assignment was our final project for the course. It required us to design a small business site using a custom-built WordPress theme. Rather than choosing the class example client, I chose to redesign my local veterinarian’s site (while taking a few creative liberties).
Clean, professional, condensed, organized, efficient.
Pet owners who prefer the convenience of booking and paying for an appointment online.
As per course requirements, this website was built on a custom WordPress installation. Prior to coding, I created a basic wireframe (wireframe.cc) and a more detailed mockup using Photoshop to plan out my site. Then I got to work building the site using Atom editor and keeping track of my progress with Git.
Favorite Aspect of Project
Learning how to utilize WordPress’ widgets and plugins to create a more powerful custom site.
What did you learn while completing this Project?
So much! But mostly how to comfortably code basic PHP and the nuances of WordPress.
