July 2007. Emily’s photography business was taking off, and we were asked to build a Movable Type-based site where she could share her work. It was easy to build Flom Designs and Photography because we were given a clear mock-up and all the artwork needed to build the site — but we still worked our own special touch upon it.
How did we leave our mark?
The sidebars to the site were built with flexibility in mind: using the Widget Manager plugin (bundled with MT) made a modular approach easy and provided a great way for Emily to simply reorganize content anytime she liked. Similarly, breaking the big sidebar down into small modules meant she could find her way around each of them easily and edit them as necessary in the future. (In fact, there have already been a number of minor changes and additions since we completed her site.)
