Working on a contract basis with Nathan Streater I assisted with the development and launch of the John Carnohan website. John required a site for his own business that portrayed his 25+ years experience in the financial services industry in both Australia and the U.S. working for some of the world’s largest and most successful companies.
Nathan Streater provided a beautifully formatted workflow document along with the Photoshop user interface which I converted into a HTML/CSS responsive website for optimal desktop and mobile viewing. The site was then transformed into a custom WordPress theme to give the client the ability to add/remove pages, upload files, manipulate content and manage a blog/news section.
There were a few ‘scalable’ challenges involved with this project in particular the formatting of the tabbed-icon based menu and headings that encompassed horizontal section dividers. After some procrastination I successfully implemented the latter feature by applying the textured grey pattern (used on the body) to the background of the heading tags. In essence this created a mask like effect.
On the What John Does page I used an elegant plugin called WP NiceScroll which essentially converts a stock standard scroll bar into an ios/mobile style that only appears on hover. You can see this in action by placing your cursor over a testimonial.
The custom typeface which is present in various weights is called Lato.
