Project Description —Alistair Shepherd

I was contacted by James Gordon—one of the owners of The 1896 Gallery and Coffee Shop—through my Facebook page, enquiring about a lightweight website for the coffee shop. They had intended to have a website built shortly after their launch in 2015, however never found a developer they wanted to use and didn't get around to searching for one until they stumbled across Accudio.

I was more than happy to help out, and had a phone consultation resulting in a plan for a static, lightweight website that could be hosted on existing web hosting, was responsive, designed around the coffee shop's already existing colour scheme and importantly was fully responsive, supporting mobile users. The website is very much focused around the images, with only small amounts of text to accompany them. 

Bootstrap 3 was chosen as it allowed me to build a responsive, great looking design fairly quickly and without many overheads. So the website would not require constant maintenance, the site gallery is integrated with the facebook page, so uploaded images were displayed on the website, and we designed and built a dynamic opening times widget for the header of the site, so visitors would always know whether the gallery was open and if not when it would be.
