The Brief

North London based construction company Galldris needed a new corporate website that focused strongly on featuring their past projects, the categories of services they offered and the industry sectors they operate in. The brief was to build a website with a design that used a lot of transparencies, design elements that reflected their industry, a blog and video listing, and a project section that could be filtered by industry sector and the services Galldris provide.

The Solution

Given the initial tight deadline and budget, a premium theme that provided basic UI and site structure in combination with a child theme and custom developed functionality was chosen. The project section was built with custom templates, a custom post type, custom taxonomies, custom meta fields, an ajax driven pagination and taxonomy filters, and a custom build responsive custom post type grid with alternating horizontal and vertical layouts that use css3 animations on page load.
