Website Refresh – JaPaulScape.com

Busy as usual, but I wanted to make a quick post to feature a website refresh for one of my customers that I’m especially proud of, JaPaulscape.com.  The owner called me looking to get an update and refresh for his site, including a new logo.  I contacted the designer I’ve been partnering with, Evan at Drew Sevan Design, and we came up with a new lofo for JaPaul’ and an update for his site.

We kept him on WordPress and added these features and updates:

  1. New logo
  2. Cycling background image.  The owner wanted it and I was hesitant at first, but in the end I think it looks great and adds movement to the site that I normally achieve with a slider.  Good call on his part.
  3. Addition of floating social link tabs to the right side of the site.
  4. Upgraded site to latest version of WordPress, currently 3.7.1
  5. Upgraded theme to latest version of Builder, currently 5.0.10.  This allowed me to take advantage of new features including:
    1. Native mobile and tablet responsive support.  Check it out on your phone, I love the new nav bar styling
    2. Easier customization and upgrading
    3. Automatic theme updates
  6. Updated and adapted code and css to keep his old options in the new setup.

Evan and I are putting together a service to do this for businesses that need a site refresh and/or web facelift.  Look for an announcement in the near future, possibly today!

Here’s a before and after, let me know what you think.
