Which Vehicle To Buy

"I can highly recommend Katie for your project, all work is completed on time and has a great understanding of whats involved with the contract she undertook for us. We will be using again." Michael Armstrong

I designed and developed a website on Squarespace for Mick based on his chosen theme. The site is a store and blog which avertises the best vehicles to buy from campervans to cars and everything in between.

Mick had drawn up some ideas for the home page and I developed these in Squarespace and built the rest of the site surrounding this. We worked closely to milstones and had the site completed within a 2 week timeframe, giving Mick plenty of time for his launch.

The website featured parallax scrolling on the home page, space for banner advertisements and grids of social feeds. Mailchimp was integrated into the site to allow users to subscribe and affiliate links were integrated into the store.

Upon completion, I wrote Mick a 10 page user guide which will allow him to maintain his site and reduce the cost of further development

Since completing 'Which Vehicle To Buy', Mick has asked if I will develop a site for his wife, which I am very much looking forward to.


July, 2018

Mick contacted me in July as he needed a cookie banner implemented and styled to ensure he was GDPR compliant. The cookie banner only uses cookies once the user has consented and is styled to suit the rest of the site. I used the same font type, size and colours and also added in a hint of blue as the border of the cookie banner, to keep the brand style consistent throughout. The positioning of the cookie banner was very important, I tried a number of different positions before deciding upon the bottom left corner; this position was the least distracting to the user but still prompted them to click 'continue' and therefore accept cookies (this is important as the analytics will be more accurate if users consent).
