Your assignment is to implement a WordPress theme / landing page to get it looking as close to the provided design as possible.
The Designer at Bizzy Bizzy has provided you with design for a new landing page for Remotely! Your task is to build out the Child Theme and Home Page based on the designs and website copy inside the /skills-test folder.
- Download a copy of all the files in this Google Drive folder
- Start with an fresh WordPress installation and Page Builder of your choice (e.g. Divi, Elementor, Gutenberg)
- Create a child theme with a header and footer (you can leave the social media links as a # sign)
- Implement a responsive WordPress theme and home page to get it looking as close to design as possible to the desktop mockup found in the /design folder
- Font family is Roboto. You can eyeball the header sizes and sample hex codes from the mockup.
- Build out content and page layout for Home Page as seen on the mockup. Text can be found in the /copy folder
- Add hover themes to buttons and links
- Make the area with the 5 photos into a clickable photo Gallery
- Create other pages (About, Partners, Gallery, Contact and Booking) for navigation purposes, but those pages can be empty.
- Whenever possible, use CSS for gradients and shapes rather than images.
- Surprise us! Feel free to add any feature, page or design element that you think would work well.
- Best Practices: WordPress child theme development best practices
- Responsiveness: Does the theme function well on all screen sizes?
- Client Friendly: Is the home page made in a way that is easy for a Client to update later?
- Maintainability: Is the CSS written in a clean, documented and maintainable way?
- Attention to Detail: How close does the site look like the mockup?
