Well this was a great project to be included in. I was asked to re-work a friends Dad’s website as I was recommended through word-of-mouth. I was happy to have a look at the site and as soon as I saw it, the ideas just ballooned and I had already visualised several concepts.
My main thinking for this site was to build it mobile up; I created a responsive grid system which focused on this fact. It also allows for non-device centric thinking and content response. Therefore, if there is a paragraph that leaves windows, or jumps out on a tablet device, you can simply add a media query and it is back in line.
To make things run smoothly with the grid, I developed a simple mobile version and adapted it for landscape tablets and desktops. I decided the best time to bring in the grid is around the 768px mark. So, if you want to check this out have a little screen size fun.
Was the Customer happy though Mr Big Shot Grid System?
I was working with Dave and from what I understand; Dave was a very happy man. He really loved the mobile version and then I showed him the CSS3 hover tricks and image switching; then he was extremely excited by it.
Special thanks too
Most special thanks to Mr Jack Westbury of Juke Web Design for his proofreading and general input on all of the sites I have created. I couldn’t do it without you.
So after all that, here is the new shiny, mobile up site for
