Bristlecone Studio

Design


Bristlecone Studio is a WordPress website built using the Infinity Pro child theme for the Genesis framework. A simple black and white color scheme was chosen with a bright aqua accent color. The typography used is a combination of Josefin Sans, BenchNine, and Cormorant Garamond. I created the custom logo in Gimp.

The Challenge


To create a functional one-page website for a small web design company.

The Home Page and Menu


Because the entire site is one page, the header menu consists of only a home link and a contact link. The contact link scrolls the page down to a contact form. The front page has several other sections including custom web design, a contact CTA, recent work links, and testimonials. The recent work links are portfolio custom post types.

Site Footer


The site footer section contains a repeat of the header menu and copyright information.

Contact Form


The contact form was created with Ninja Forms.

Development


The website is a one-page site using Genesis, HTML5 and CSS3. Plugins used during development were Genesis Portfolio Pro, iThemes Security, and Ninja Forms. Google Analytics dashboard was installed so that site traffic could be tracked by the site owner. The images were manually optimized in Gimp. The website was made responsive to work on mobile, tablet, and desktop devices. Coding/editing: HTML5, CSS3, PHP.

Search Engine Optimization


The Bristlecone Studio website has been fully optimized for SEO based on their specific keywords. All images, content and the complete structure of the website has been optimized for best SEO practices.

Conclusion


Creating the Bristlecone Studio site was a good opportunity to make a true one-page, functional, small business website.
