Author website design

Showcasing the life and work of an eccentric author of over 25 published books. The landing page allows the full home page to load in the background for improved page loading time. The home page contains all essential information and links, with the most important messages appearing ‘above the fold’. The website layout responds to the device and orientation it is being viewed on. The style reflects the tone of Eleanor Berry's unique writing style.

The website is data-driven, every book has been catalogued, and has its own dedicated page. There are multiple ways for visitors to browse the books using the navigation butoons, i.e. grid, list, full page slideshow, Amazon shop, etc.
