Lawless For Maryland

Nov 20th, 2009 | By | Category: Portfolio

This site is yet anoth­er Word­Press imple­men­ta­tion mak­ing heavy use of tem­plate files and cus­tom scripts per page. Word­Press seems ide­al­ly suit­ed for polit­i­cal cam­paigns and polit­i­cal web­sites for it’s sim­plic­i­ty and ease of main­te­nance. The idea with this site was to make it look pro­fes­sion­al and make use of social tech­nolo­gies which politi­cians are start­ing to real­ize are nec­es­sary and smart.

We made heavy use of CSS in this design, as well as mod­er­ate JavaScript (which means, IE6 users need not apply). We depart­ed slight­ly from the orig­i­nal design I sup­plied, but I think we arrived at a decent com­pro­mise. One of the goals was small image sizes, so PNG’s are used where they are need­ed, but 92% JPG’s are used for the big stuff. The nav­i­ga­tion bar at the top was intend­ed to look inset, and to show the capi­tol build­ing in the back­ground through itself. Thank the Inter­net gods for trans­par­ent PNG’s right?

Feel free to let me know what you think (good or bad). Some of you are smarter than I am, and your (con­struc­tive) feed­back is always appre­ci­at­ed.
