Julie Tattam, multi-award winning bodypainter and owner of Skincognito Body Painting, reached out a few weeks after I restarted my web design and development career. I've worked with Julie on a few versions of her company website over the years, so I was very excited to get a chance to work with her again.
Unfortunately, the circumstances around the new project could have been better. Her long-time web hosting provider was hacked so she needed help rebuilding and redesigning her website and moving it to a new web host.
The website refresh
Julie already had design mockups of what she wanted her website to look like, so my job was to translate her design into a new theme and incorporate the following features:
- An online portfolio with an image gallery to display her projects over the years
- A shopping cart so users can book and pay for her bodypainting courses and sessions online
- A dynamic course timetable that shows availability
- A contact form so users can get in touch with her
We made sure that there was a clear call to action at the end of each page so users knew what to do and where to go next.
Being active in the body art industry meant heaps of projects over the years and a lot of content to include on the website. To manage this, we set up a category-organised portfolio to allow site visitors to easily browse Julie's work.
Online store for class bookings
To allow Julie and her team to accept online bookings for her face and body painting workshops and services, I configured the WooCommerce plugin which enables users to book and pay using their credit card or PayPal account.
The fine details
To cap it all off, since the project also involved switching to a different web host and a couple of new plugins, I also provided Julie and her team with website documentation as a quick reference.
