Pakos Home Repair is a Tampa based handyman who wanted to have some presence online with the idea of growing in the business overtime. He wanted a site which allows the flexibility of recycling his jobs in the future, sorting out the new projects from the old basic ones. As an small business myself, I did everything I could to help Pakos Home Repair.
Responsiveness was the major concern, from the get-go, for the way this eCommerce site would do business. Interacting with a young audience, so accustomed to mobile devices, required a design equally appealing on small screens and desktops as well.
The following images are quick sketches developed in the 2 weeks timeline to complete this small job. The idea behind the site is to create a startup layout with a basic gallery which eventually will replace itself with new works and projects.
These are typical page layouts for this job. You will never get to experience a full birdview of the pages as presented here, but it allows you to see what the job typically is in design mode. Based on this overall capture we can tell what works and what does not.
This was a small job done in 2 weeks using WordPress 4.+ for flexibility on Content Management System (CMS). Full control of the site was turned over the owner for updating content information as needed.
All images have specific ratios and proportions and owner was provided with psd mockups to stay away from causing inconsistency in the design intent.
