VolksArt – Designer T-Shirts

This site, featuring designer T-Shirts for New Zealanders, is designed by Mark Tyrell of Elan Design .

Urban Legend web was contracted to customise the functionality of the WordPress WooCommerce-driven site.

In terms of design, that included a mobile-friendly and heavily-customised theme based on the Gantry framework.

In terms of functionality, the site is again heavily-customised, including;

  • implementing security and content module customisations to WordPress & WooCommerce
  • a two-tier sign-up and pricing system which distinguishes between retailers and shoppers
  • a flexible and user-friendly front-end ordering system which allows buyers to choose mutliple products and variants from a single page

The content is managed by Elan Design.

Online HiFi

This online Hi-Fi site is built under contract from a Christchurch webshop, publica.co.nz.

It is based on WordPress, and uses the popular and high-quality WooCommerce framework to sell Hi-Fi equipment online.

The theme is an original designed by Publica, and rendered by Urban Legend web using a child theme of WooThemes’ flagship Canvas theme.

Davis Ogilvie

This WordPress-driven site is for a South Island, New Zealand engineering, surveying, and development company.

Urban Legend web was commissioned by Publica DDM to create the theme and functionality from supplied PSD files.

We used  Responsive v 1.9.3.5 as a parent theme. A series of new widgetable areas was created,  the Advanced Custom Fields plugin was used. Custom jQuery drives the front page scroller, and portfolio and people page mouseovers.

Busy Silence

If you’ve wondered why there’s been no work ‘from our desk’ recently, it’s because I’ve been beavering away in silence. Heads down … etc. Working that is, on half a dozen or so relatively larger projects from two New Zealand agencies. That is, site builds, using WordPress, and wrangling supplied documents ( designs, specified functionality ) into custom WordPress themes and functionality. I’m bound by Non-Disclosure agreements ( content is still being entered ), so can’t give any more details until the sites are launched ( soon, I hope ) . Watch this space…

Urban Legend web update

This site’s new skin is an original design based on the WordPress theme The Bootstrap.

That theme is responsive, catering to mobile, handheld, and desktop browsers. Its built-in functionality includes the carousel, and modal link from the quote button on the front page, and the accordion on the portfolio page. That page also uses the jQuery-based fancybox plugin. The theme is a WordPress version of the bootstrap framework, which uses the latest in web standards – HTML5, and CSS3.

Fibi Fitness

This site is for a company in New Hampshire which trains clients for fitness and competition.

The site is powered by WordPress, which enables the owners to edit content, and the WooCommerce engine, which takes orders online. It uses a highly customised version of the AutofocusPro theme to showcase post images, and features a front-page slider to highlight competitors trained by the company.

The design is by Urban Legend web.
