I initially made contact with the brewery, which is based just walking distance from my house, in 2018 after designing a concept site. I noticed that there existing site, which was designed using a WordPress hosted site, lacked the interactivity and eye-catching features when compared to some other local brewery sites. Following completion of work on other projects, in 2019 the brewery re-approached me to ask me to design them a brand new site. Elements of the concept site were used, and I was able to have a large amount of input on how the site should look, following a brief of which pages and functions were important to the client. I enjoyed working on this project, which increased my skill-set - this was the first site I've designed to date which has e-commerce functionality, and I now have a much broader understanding of Woocommerce and Stripe in particular.
From the client:
"James worked to our brief and time schedule effectively. He provided us with regular updates of how his work was progressing, and suggested ideas for several areas of the site. It was important for the site to both have a shop section, and to be fully responsive when viewed on mobile devices. The site is, visually, a huge improvement on our old site and is a great way to promote ourselves as we seek to build our business. We can't recommend James highly enough."
