My role: Custom WordPress theme design & development. I did this project through my freelance web design service, Pixel Plane Media.
Chicago Green Windows is a full-service shop that specializes in sustainable window repair and installation, with a focus on historic and landmark buildings. The owner of this shop needed a simple website that would allow him to not only advertise his services, but to educate website visitors (and potential customers) about his approach to window repair and installation. He also wanted to provide a way for potential customers to contact him through the site.
- A simple, straightforward, yet unique design. In choosing a color scheme, we settled on one that I felt captures the essence of Chicago Green Windows’ approach to business. Chicago Green Windows has a great appreciation for sustainability and the preservation of historic character. The earthy browns, greens, light tan and a touch of yellow and blue used in the design lend themselves well to this purpose.
- WordPress as a content management system. WordPress provides the flexibility to provide the simplicity the owner was looking for, with room for future expansion if needed. A few plugins were utilized to provide front-end editing, a contact form and enhanced SEO optimization.
- Usage of the built-in WordPress photo galleries power the “Case Studies” section of the site.
