Building A Website For Baby Castings
A Couple of months ago (late July 2018), I was trying to get out of washing the dishes by looking at Facebook – one of the businesses I follow on Facebook is Crafty Chops Castings – Leeds. The proprietor, Marie, put out a call for web designers to get in contact. She needed help with a website for baby castings.
I fought my way up the ladder and rolled out a prototype of the new site – ready for Marie to see.
Whenever I build a prototype of a site, the prototype is always housed on a subdomain of my site. This allows me to work on it in relative anonymity and allows me to share my work with my client – so we can work together on the build with almost instant feedback. It cuts out all of the local builds and lets me sort the wheat from the chaff.

Marie, the proprietor of Craft Chops, had had a bad run with a giant in web design. She was a former client of Yell – I hope she has warmed to the way this Freelancer works and that she is now a priority. When you ask a big organisation to help with a website, you do not really matter to them – over the past eight or so weeks I have come to know Marie a bit better and that has allowed me to build her a better site.
The site was made using WordPress and all of the images on the site are taken by Marie. The wording was written up and all I had to do was cut and paste – the hard work was in making the images responsive. But, the site works on mobiles and laptops (it looks amazing on Tablets, like an iPad!).
