About the project
I probably say this about every theme I code, but this is one of my very favorites. The gorgeous pictures, clean fonts, and custom footer definitely have my looking like the heart-eyes emoji over here!
Sugar is a premade template for Coded Creative. As always, Kory did an amazing job incorporating a strategy into her original design. The theme's purpose was to be photo and content focused to draw visitors to reading blog posts, while still keeping opt-in boxes visible. Perfect for someone who wants their content to do the talking.
The hand-off for this project was a dream. Kory and I have a lot of experience working together so I got all mockups, font files, images, copy, and style guide right away.
The trickiest part of Sugar's development was the homepage slider. Since this is a premade template, we didn't want to require our customers to buy a premium plugin to get the features we wanted. That led me to make a whole lot of style customizations to the Genesis Responsive Slider plugin. The troubleshooting was definitely worth it. I mean, look at the result!

Development is absolutely not my thing. I love working with Krista because I finally have the freedom to create really beautiful and creative designs that my clients will love and know that it’ll actually be possible because I have an amazing developer to let take control instead of spending hours trying to figure it out myself. Plus, I love that she’s able to handle tech stuff in a way that I can’t, so I know my clients and their websites are in great hands with her.
