Pattie from Second Act Chicago came to us because her website needed to be updated to be mobile friendly and to clean up a lot of formatting issues that cropped up through the years of editing. You can view her old website on the wayback machine here. We decided to keep her branding since it still worked for her, but it still needed a lot of work. The home page needed the copy to be broken up, the background image didn’t fill the entire page if it was too long, the images for all the products were not cropped correctly, and it was not mobile friendly.
Chad stepped in to help with the design and made a mock up to allow the page to span the whole width of the browser since there was a lot of dead space on the left and right of the main content.
Navigation also was an issue when the website was viewed on a phone. Instead of the standard “hamburger menu,” a customer would need to scroll to the sides in order to click on the links. The text was also quite small and hard to click in the navigation, so we decided to fix these issues.
Using the latest updates for WordPress, we took all of the content that was already on the site and put it into a Gutenberg friendly format. This allows the content to be broken up into sections and made it easier for us to add/remove content without deviating from the branding and ultimately took less development time to accomplish.
