Ship Shape and Gibraltar Fashion

Very pleased this week to complete another project for WorkITGibraltar, Gibraltar’s social media experts, for their client Fiduciary Marine Services Limited. As a regular collaborator on WorkIT’s WordPress website team, I’ve designed this new website, using the professional StudioPress Enterprise theme as a basis, and the Fiduciary Group’s existing brand identity and photography. Using Adobe Photoshop, I created an accurate, pixel-perfect visual of the website, for approval purposes by WorkITGibraltar and their client’s, prior to the actual site build. Once confirmed it was what the client wanted the WordPress website was built by another team player, specialist WordPress developer and code tweaker, WPFab.

All hands on deck!
Once WPFab had the website in place – and whilst hidden from public view – the team worked intensely on the site, inputting content, uploading newsletters and documentation, tweaking code and installing plugins and widgets – and on my part, creating graphics to illustrate page content and making recommendations on how the layout of certain content might appear better.

Precious Cargo - (ha, you’re recognising a nautical theme here, I hope!)
One of the things which makes WordPress so brilliant to work with is its massive scope of plugins which will do clever things you just want the site to do! A new favourite of mine, installed on this site, is the fantastic Download Monitor plugin which is used to manage content and measure how many times a particular document is downloaded. This we’ve used for Fiduciary Marine’s Communiqué newsletter download page. Thumbnails and a content list of each newsletter has also been included so readers can download the newsletter they need.

Shipping News!
Fiduciary Marine Registration website is a harbour (groan!) for the latest marine news. A clever page has been coded by WPFab which pulls in RSS feeds from the shipping sector’s industry news sources.

The Crewcouldn’t resist
Thank you WorkITGib and WPFab for another pleasurable and collaborative project, which was just ‘plain sailing’ …
