About This Project
Wander Africa — Home Page
Wander Africa — Safaris
This was a very detailed project. There have been a lot of elements involved in making this website look and behave the way it was designed and envisioned by the original designer and by the owner/proprietor.
In this particular case, I did very little web “design”, per say, and a lot more web “development”. The majority of my job was ultimately in taking the existing web design, the existing text, the existing images, and creating a more responsive and functional website that would ultimately be easier for the user to navigate, and easier for the owner to update and adjust as time goes on, as this website is ultimately an ongoing work-in-progress. I was able to build an entirely new website in about three weeks while simultaneously and single-handedly designing and building two other websites, still maintaining my existing photography and web clients. This client — whom I will always drop anything personal that I’m doing and work for because he is the perfect client and so easy to work with — and I spent an additional couple of weeks adding onto the new platform by including and making adjustments to additional images and text content. It is a work in progress, but it is a better work in progress (in my opinion) than it was before I began.
There were multiple factors at play here. The home page video had to be re-edited and reformatted a few times in order to make it visible to users of multiple browsers; the contact pages had to be redone; the individual safari pages needed serious revamping; the images had to be resized. Jay Parmar, the business owner, has a great working knowledge of technology, and of WordPress, specifically, so I am confident that this website will serve him and his business for years to come.
