Judy Wigin. Judy had spent time in Venice, Berlin and Seville before the pandemic hit and on her return to Brighton found herself with plenty of time to paint what she'd seen on her travels. She then got the idea of turning some of her paintings into cards for family and friends and this proved successful enough for her to think about getting a little e-commerce site built to do things more professionally; which is where we came in. We built the site using the Foundry framework (based on Twitter Bootstrap) incorporated an Ecwid store (the free version generously allows up to 10 products to be sold) an feed from Judy's Instagram account to showcase her work in progress and a blog from Tumblr.
One of the benefits of using a program like Rapidweaver to create websites is that it's easy to create a 'family' of websites that share the same look and feel by re-working the same design. Here we created a near-copy of the All About My Father website, using the same structure, design, menu, fonts and simply changed the colour accents and the added the new content. This allowed us to create a new site fro scratch in just a couple of days which cut costs, while still producing a professional-looking website that works great across all devices. Once again we took advantage of the Foundry framework which is based on Twitter Bootstrap to build the site as well as the fancy Grid Iron plugin which reads Excel files and allowed to create a large, searchable, sortable table of family members.
