As part of the Thinking Juice team, I co-led Wyke's WordPress website build which was redesigned to be in line with their new brand. The site went on to win Wirehive's 2016 Consumer Site of the Year award.
As part of their 2015 rebrand, Wyke Farms needed a website that could advertise their brand, teach customers about their history and promote their initatives. With the site now having been live for some time and many improvements having been made, it still holds up very well against the competition.
My role was to ensure that the design was being closely followed throughout build, that the CMS was structured correctly (to allow the client to add content on a regular basis) and that we’d honoured the original brief. Working with client services and design, the project expanded to include an area on the site to which the client could post recipes and eventually eCommerce functionality with WooCommerce.
As a team, we agreed on componentising the elements the site used: menus, buttons, forms etc and utilising a CSS structure that would cut down on duplicate code. On the back-end we used the Twig/Timber structure we’ve adopted on many of our websites, which kept our templates clean and separate them from controller logic.
