Responsive Web Design for Woodwork Wizardry

Portfolio Categories: Web.

Woodwork Wizardry was an exciting project to work on. The client required a responsive photo-rich website. The extensive portfolio would need to contain existing photographs and additional imagery created by Vivid. The homepage would display a selection of photographs, a link to the portfolio section and areas of user interest.

The portfolio contains categories, studies and living spaces, bedrooms, libraries, outdoor garden spaces and shop fitting and exhibitions. Each category would link to a portfolio of further images and a popup picture gallery.

Client testimonials were a key feature of Ian’s success. Vivid included a testimonials page with additional quotes displayed in the sidebar, along with a search facility.

A Case Study would include access to enable the client to populate information in the future.


To build the site we used WordPress and the help of Genesis Themes. WordPress would allow the client to update the content and images on the website. A WordPress half-day training course was factored into the cost of the website build.

A secure contact form is also embedded into the site. Allowing the collections of data from clients. Required fields are used to prevent spam.

Google analytics was used to measure performance. Vivid researched and suggested keywords to enhance search engine visibility. The site has had steady traffic and within two months of launch, paid for itself.
