Responsive WordPress Design

After I won the contract to design and build a responsive WordPress blog for, the main objective for the redesign was to produce a fresh, easy to navigate, highly trust worthy design. Mobile traffic was increasing month on month so a fully responsive website design was required. I scoped out the product and went on to design each unique page, mocking up the design on each unique device and giving the client a visual representation of the final look of the website.


Advanced WordPress Development required advanced WordPress development to deliver the required functionality to the team. The blog has thousands of posts and each needed to be reformatted to fit the new design and the responsive behaviour. Dynamic scripts were coded to resize all the thousands and thousands of images throughout the blog. To adhere to new legislation, a comment abuse reporting feature was developed so visitors could report abusive comments to the Marilyn Stowe moderators who could then take immediate action.

The Result

From initial scope, through design, development, content population and setup, I worked along side the Marilyn Stowe team to deliver the full service and support package. The new website has already made quite an impact, with both Marilyn, her team and their growing online audience.
