Development

The first step in creating this website was the design. After determining the site features, I designed the user flow, created wireframes for each page, and then created high-resolution mockups.

The design work provided a template for front-end development HTML, CSS, JQuery and, PHP. Then I created a MySQL database and intergrated all the works into the site.

I also took the time to make urls on the site friendly and readable.

Each work also has social share links. SEO and share-optimization on each pages ensures that links are rich and accurate and that the site can reach users through Google and other search engines.

Social media accounts are live on Twitter and Tumblr.
