I worked with New York-based author and illustrator, Jeff Tompkins to redesign his portfolio website. Jeff wanted a clean and fresh design that is fully responsive and looks good across different devices. After determining his needs, I created the initial mock ups and translated them into plain HTML pages. I then tested the paged with Jeff and three other users. I synthesized their feedback into the final design for the site. Finally, I created a custom WordPress theme that reflects Jeff’s minimal aesthetic with just a touch of the handmade through the use of a font that emulates handwriting. The custom fields and pages on the backend are as easy to navigate for the client as the front-end user experience is for the audience.
