Laura Oakes is widely recognised for her unique style of “digital decoupage”, featuring layers of vintage and hand-drawn imagery with her own photography.
We’ve been working with Laura for six months to develop her designs and ideas into a working and functional website.
Laura has had an integral role in designing the look and layout her own website from the overall layout to the roll overs and jQuery features.
Our job has been to pull her ideas and requirements together into this beautifully designed package.
Her website is powered by WordPress with a bespoke theme that makes use of built in features to deliver her content.
Laura can easily manage all content within her site but that’s not all. We have developed her WordPress theme to work for her. When Laura uploads a new product and tags it with relevant keywords, the site automatically displays the product on other “similar” product pages using a jQuery image slider.
Product pages also make use of other jQuery elements including a feature called “Cloud Zoom” which allows users to look at the product images in more detail.
Laura’s unique designs have made her website a refreshing challenge to develop and it is no surprise that we look forward to working on new features that are already in the pipeline!
