- Crafter of Codes: James Whayman, at the helm of WildPress.
- Industry Niche: Web Development – where functionality meets finesse.
- Corner of the Internet: https://wildpress.co/ – the gateway to my digital showcase.
Every web developer needs their own standard-bearer; a digital portfolio to not only draw the crowd but to hold the tent up too. My mission was to construct a living exhibit of my work while sidestepping the snares of the common web trappings.
- Erect an online portfolio that’s a cut above – one that serves up both a visual treat and a narrative feast.
- Utilize Hugo - the Static Site Generator (SSG), my chosen sidekick for this adventure, allowing my comfort with Markdown to drive us forward to a site that loads faster than a disappearing rabbit in a magic act.
- Ascend the SEO rankings with a strategic sleight of hand, outwitting the competition with a wink and a nod, all the while playing by the search engine’s rulebook.
- Initiate a seamless call to action that doesn’t meander about but rather politely point to the ‘Book a Chat’ button.
Approach and Execution
- Hugo’s Sprint: Embraced Hugo for its briskness and clung to Markdown, making site updates nearly as pleasurable as a good cup of tea.
- Minimalist Approach: Honed a design that’s like a crisp, clear autumn morning – easy on the eyes and refreshing to navigate.
- SEO Tête-à-Tête: Finesse meta tags and structured data with a light touch for a site that quietly climbs the search ranks.
- The Lone CTA: Cut through the froth and presented one single call-to-action – because life’s complicated enough without multi-layered website navigation menus.
- An elegantly designed portfolio that showcases my capabilities without shouting from the rooftops.
- Lightweight pages that snap into place with the punctuality of the Greenwich Time Signal.
- A tip of the hat to GDPR – respecting privacy without all the fuss.
- A site that doesn’t just race to the top of search results but rather takes the scenic route, enjoying the journey as much as the arrival.
- A user experience that’s as straightforward as a London A to Z, guiding visitors where they need to go with none of the usual palaver.
- The joy of maintenance that’s about as taxing as a leisurely Sunday crossword.
