Portfolio website design for visual artist


Miranda Nichols

This project is an online version of an artist’s portfolio, built to be easily managed by the artist. The site uses WordPress as a Content Management System and blogging platform. I converted my custom design for the site into a WordPress theme, to handle the look and feel of the site, while allowing the client to log in and control the content.

I made many modifications to the basic WordPress install to make it better suited for a portfolio, by coding custom features, and building a separate area in the backend for portfolio management.

I built a Jquery-enhanced menu, and a Jquery-driven slideshow that dynamically pulls content from the portfolio area. I implemented custom option pages in WordPress to allow Miranda to update all her own social networking links.


This project uses:
XHTML, CSS, JQuery/JavaScript, WordPress, PHP
