Interface Design AuroraCreative Projects

Client: Aurora Creative
Completion: 2018-2020

  • Front-end code (HTML, CSS, jQuery)
  • CMS (Craft)

Aurora Creative is an agency in Victoria offering online and offline services to businesses.

In early 2018 they contacted me looking for a Craft CMS developer to convert their designs into functioning websites. They have been working with another team but had found them to be unreliable and expensive.

Since that first project in 2018, we have built eight Craft websites.

​For each project, Aurora provides desktop mockups and asset details.

I then

  • build-up the responsive HTML templates
  • install and setup Craft CMS
  • convert those HTML files into dynamic Craft templates
  • hand back to Aurora

Aurora can then finalise the content, then train the client on updating and maintaining their site.

​I can normally turnaround builds in about two-three weeks - depending on my workload at the time.

Craft CMS is a great platform for developers (it’s why it’s my favourite) and users (ease-of-use is why Aurora loves it).
