Rachel Adams is a new independent author with some books that have been published. She wanted the website redesigned to be more visually appealing to current and future fans who visit her website. She wanted it to be dynamic and easy to update for both books and events.
The old website was a single landing page with not much to offer the visitor and was not very easy to make updates other than posting blogs. Rachel wanted it to be beautiful, easy, and fast.
I did a ton of research through other author's websites to get an understanding of the things they typically show, but I didn't want the website I designed to end up average and get lost in the shuffle. I wanted to highlight the books, serials, and events in a way that stood out to the visitor. I honestly think I nailed it!
This page was designed to showcase things about Rachel that make the visitor interested in reading her works. I also did a similar page for her co-author so fans can get to know them both.
This page was designed and built to be completely dynamic. With this, Rachel only needs to make the update in the Book custom post section with all the descriptions and details. This standardized what information would be needed for each book to have the correct items for the visitor's user experience.
