Tavistock Wood is a talent and literacy agency that highlights their clients and their services.
Front End Description
The client provided mockups (Photoshop PSD files) and I turned those into the WordPress theme you see. The home page uses jQuery Cycle to cycle randomly through images associated with client pages which are chosen (special field) so the client can easily add/remove images that show up on the home page.
Back End Description
There were a number of custom elements to this site. The most visible is the jQuery cycles that are on the homepage. I used jQuery Cycle plugin along with some custom WordPress loops to dynamically generate the images you see on the home page. I also did some custom plugin programming for this client so they could easily select what posts would appear in the loop for the home page, what image(s) would be used, etc. I also set it up so that if the client had more than one photo – the images would be cycled just like the home page – only on the single client page.
Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts
I have used jQuery Cycle quite a bit now and it was fun to use it with this project so that I learned even more about it.
