M33 Design Limited provide a wide range of architectural design services within the domestic and private sector.
Requiring a showcase for his architectural design work an important aspect was the ability to easily add pictures. So a way of editing images was also a requirement.
Wordpress was chosen for this project along with an attractive theme (basic style of site). This approach keeps prices to a minimum and ensures a quick process (around a week in this case - from start to training and launch).
The chosen theme makes the website dynamically change depending upon the tool used to view the site. Desktop, small laptop, tablet or smartphone. All viewers will see a slightly different arrangement.
To enable images to be added I suggested Ross use the image processing software Irfanview. This has a great range of features and is much easier to use than Photoshop. I provided onsite training in Wordpress and Irfanview. Nothing beats hands on training.
Ross now has an attractive website, with a minimal budget, quick turnaround and crucial onsite training and support. A vital aspect of the training and support is the addition of image processing. Simply dumping 16Mb images onto websites doesn't work. So a little time spent cropping and re-sizing images for the web is time well spent. E.g. some of the images Ross provided looked great but were slightly rotated. Irfanview has a simple process to rotate images back to level. The sides then need cropped to hide the 'black bits' resulting from the rotation. Additionally, keeping all images to the same shape helps make for pleasing aesthetics. This too was handled during training.
