Web Design Examples - Linda Gillard
Author Linda Gillard is a recently published author with Transita who needed a website built prior to the release of her second book. She wanted a site which featured the subject matter of her books while also reflecting her interests in texture, fabric, and photography.
I took the themes of Linda's first book, Emotional Geology, and using images of rocks, mountaineering equipment, and Linda's own quilts, I was able to create an attractive and evocative environment for Linda's own thoughts and writing.
Linda wanted to be able to update elements of the site herself so it was constructed as a database driven system using PHP and MySQL and incorporates a content management system controlling the text and images.
