And now…the redesign project for Le Plaisir De’crire.
This is another project I worked on over the holiday break.
Jacqueline contacted me to redesign her website Le Plaisir De’crire. She was looking for a feminine theme that had a slider to promote her eBooks and journals. And, she wanted a library so that members could access her free resources.
About the Design
There was no question to what theme I was going to use for Jacqueline’s site. Hands down the Refined Pro theme* by StudioPress was the perfect one.
They layout was perfect because it had all the components she wanted to feature. A slider at the top widget area to showcase her eBooks and journals, widgets to feature her individual products, her latest blog posts, YouTube and an Instagram widget to display her feed at the bottom of the page.
What’s more is that it’s got feminine colors and fonts so there really wasn’t much to customize.
For the library, I used the Post Table Pro* premium plugin. All I had to do was add a shortcode and viola the library was ready to go!
Here are several pages from Jacqueline’s blog:
