Cressive

The Brief

Initially, Cressive approached me with a design specification for their blog page, it had to fit with the rest of the site whilst remaining easy to use. After this project, Cressive and I would go on to work on many projects together. Cressive currently utilise a Maintenance & Support package deal for their clients and for themselves.

The Process

The main website for Cressive required a blog page, I simply adhere to the existing themes margins for alignment to prevent any disjointedness and adhered to the colour scheme across the rest of the site. Using the default WordPress sidebar, I restyled it to make it more uniform with the site, but maintaining all functionality with regards to the search function and article archive.

The home page was lagging behind slightly on load times, I found that the cause of this was primarily the JavaScript load being executed when the page loads and the main culprit turned out to be the YouTube into video. After some optimisations to the way the YouTube video was loaded, the performance saw a marked increase. Some of the images needed optimising for performance as well as the font used across the website needing to be enqueued for efficiency.
