Bethany, an illustrator from the South of England, came to me when she wanted to build a new website for her freelance business, and she came to me with a clear idea of what she wanted.
The website was created with WordPress, WooCommerce and her brilliant illustrations which are the star of the show.
The website is built on WordPress and utilises a custom post type for the portfolio and shop products, and various parts of the website are populated with custom content controlled by the Advanced Custom Fields plugin. Bethany has the ability to create categories for her illustrations and drawings on category specific pages, and also control the order of her promoted home page illustrations.
There is a blog and custom Instagram feed, as well as a contact form which sends her responses by emails.
And then there is the shop. Using WooCommerce allowed us to create a system which is easy to use, and easy to create customised products. All of the payments take place on the website, and utilise Paypal which again, fits the brief of simplicity.
This website build is always ongoing and given the way we have built the custom theme, allow easy upgrades and changes to the website as Bethany desires.
