I’ve been doing work for astrologer and counselor Lilan Laishley for quite some time. Recently, we collaborated on the redesign of her main website. This project was built from scratch using WordPress.
I chose WordPress because I enjoy it and Lilan was already familiar with it from a past project. She’s also a great learner when it comes to administering her own content. WordPress was a good fit for Lilan’s blogging goals as well.
For this redesign, Lilan wanted to clearly define her areas of expertise from the homepage, but with plenty of opportunity to click through to other areas of the website. She also wanted to list her recent blog posts on the homepage. Newsletter signup was also important for the new version of the site, since her initial pseudo-launch tied in with a global women’s launch that aimed for increased traffic and email distribution signups.
For this particular project, I was responsible for the web design as well as the web development. All photography and graphical elements were hand crafted either from scratch or photos supplied by Lilan.
