Social Plate came to me for a complete replacement of their web site. They had very specific ideas about how they wanted their site to look, so they provided me with layouts in the form of paper paste-ups and grids on spreadsheets. Since their design conformed well to a grid, I built it in a Responsive Grid system (HTML and CSS). As a result, it behaves well on pad devices and mobile phones, even though the design for computer browsers is wider than usual. The development also required popups to appear above some of the images (tool tips). Social Plate wanted their small product images to popup in with a Lightbox effect, so I installed custom Lightbox jQuery code to accomplish this feature.
The ability to tie-in an e-commerce module has been planned for in future development. I also provided this client with services to move their site from it’s old location on Yahoo stores to a network hosting account on Network Solutions.
