About the project
The WEthrive.live site was another 1-page website I worked on with DropLeaf Communications. There's something extra fun that comes with a 1-pager. Maybe it's the fact that the excitement of a new project never has the chance to wear off!
Kristin, the designer I collaborated with, is incredible to work with and, after two project, has become one of my favorites. Her files are nice and organized and I LOVE her clean design style.
The development of the WEthrive.live site was straight-forward. I built a custom child theme on the Genesis framework and made use of Beaver Builder to keep each section of the home page easy for the client to update.
The most unique piece of this project was the coaches slider near the bottom of the page. To avoid using extra plugins, I really wanted to make use of Beaver Builder, but the built-in modules weren't quite what we needed. In the end, I decided to create a custom post type for the coaches and then add some customizations to Beaver Builder's slider module to fit exactly what we were looking for.
Another unique feature I love are the words that fade in as you scroll down the page. It's subtle, but such a nice touch. Can you find them? 😉
- Coaches custom post type
- Customized Beaver Builder module for appropriate slider display
- Large words fade into background on scroll
- Click image for video lightbox
what the designer had to say
I've worked with several developers in the past with mixed results. With Krista, the final product has been something I'm proud to share with my client and the quality of work is amazing. Now, I'm not worried about what the final product is going to look like because I know it will be exactly as I hoped, if not even better.
