Wild Gasmasks V4: Gallery Pages by Catwoman69y2k
Wild Gasmasks V4: Gallery Pages
Layout and Styling for the anthro gasmasks website, Wildgasmasks.  For any of you who saw our site before 2013, you would probably have said "man, the 90s called..." as Stego had wanted to keep things real simple and just wanted the site up quickly when the company was created in 2007. I started working on version 4 of the website for a while, during my spare time and this is the result of all that thinking, plotting and planning.  

Over the years, the amount of media related to the business has grown exponentially.  From photos taken in our studio of customizations to our masks, to behind-the-scenes glimpses of our insanity, there is much to show.  So, our site also features a series of albums of photos.  I agree with many other Wordpress developers that NEXTGen gallery is a bit bloated and has its own set of issues, so I do hope to find another plugin that offers the same awesomeness with albums and slideshows in the near future.

In future years, I hope to add a few other needed tweaks and to improve upon the things I know could be improved upon.  Its nice to finally have built this website for the long run (instead of a goal of just getting it online quickly).

Wild Gasmasks V4: Accessories Listing
Layout and Styling for the anthro gasmasks website, Wildgasmasks.  For any of you who saw our site before 2013, you would probably have said "man, the 90s called..." as Stego had wanted to keep things real simple and just wanted the site up quickly when the company was created in 2007. I started working on version 4 of the website for a while, during my spare time and this is the result of all that thinking, plotting and planning. 

The accessories page is slightly different in how available items are displayed (vs our product page).  One main image is used but the thumbnails are placed *below* the description instead.  With some input from my peers, I created a gradient background for the additional thumbnails that keeps to the color scheme but provides contrast for easy viewing.  Of our accessories, the color lenses we can offer people does differ.  Because we have Wordpress' easy content management system, removing images of our out-of-stock colors has never been easier. 

In future years, I hope to add a few other needed tweaks and to improve upon the things I know could be improved upon.  Its nice to finally have built this website for the long run (instead of a goal of just getting it online quickly).

Wild Gasmasks V4: Product Pages
Layout and Styling for the anthro gasmasks website, Wildgasmasks.  For any of you who saw our site before 2013, you would probably have said "man, the 90s called..." as Stego had wanted to keep things real simple and just wanted the site up quickly when the company was created in 2007. I started working on version 4 of the website for a while, during my spare time and this is the result of all that thinking, plotting and planning.  

Wildgasmasks's website serves as a showcase for our creations.  Masks are made as they are ordered and due to the 4-9 week turnaround, it was decided that we would not need a shopping cart.  Each product page has a main image and then a scrolling carousel for additional thumbnails. Tabs below give you a description when you first load the page, with additional tabs giving you a place to download the manual and see the options available for that particular mask model.  When you click on any option given, a purple box "explodes" into view, giving you a rundown and, in some cases, a reference picture. Display of those options is controlled from the backend, with jQuery to tie in the corresponding specific information.

In future years, I hope to add a few other needed tweaks and to improve upon the things I know could be improved upon.  Its nice to finally have built this website for the long run (instead of a goal of just getting it online quickly).

Wild Gasmasks Version 4.0 Layout and Design by Catwoman69y2k
Wild Gasmasks Version 4.0 Layout and Design
Layout and Styling for the anthro gasmasks website, Wildgasmasks.  For any of you who saw our site before 2013, you would probably have said "man, the 90s called..." as Stego had wanted to keep things real simple and just wanted the site up quickly when the company was created in 2007. I started working on version 4 of the website for a while, during my spare time and this is the result of all that thinking, plotting and planning.  

Wildgasmasks is now a Wordpress site, using many modules to produce the content  you see there.  Wildgasmasks makes use of the Custom Content Type Manager (CCTM) which served as the basis for our product and accessory pages. With the fact that customers enjoy knowing the progress of their commission, I also added an order queue into the website. The Summarize Posts part of the CCTM plugin allowed me to display a few of those queue items on the sidebar outside of the actual Order Queue page.  This is updated 1-3 times a week, even allowing interested buyers a way to know if there are available commission slots. As an added bonus, this queue system sends auto-notifications at certain points of the process. Special thanks to George Popov for writing this for me.

When it came to theming, responsive websites were gaining momentum. Using Gridiculous as the base theme, everything is based off a 12-column grid. At the 800px wide breakpoint, the horizontal menu at the top moves to the mobile menu.  Using the Dynamics Widget plug-in, I eliminated some of the more bloated features of our site in consideration of mobile viewers' data plan.  I kind of debated putting the minimal content sidebar as what would load first but content remains king.

In future years, I hope to add a few other needed tweaks and to improve upon the things I know could be improved upon.  Its nice to finally have built this website for the long run (instead of a goal of just getting it online quickly).

IEFA Logo by Catwoman69y2k
IEFA Logo
Logo for the  IEFA (Inland Empire Furry Association).  They have always had a simple pawpad logo, but as the web gets "bigger", the logo started to be a bit too grainy and small for modern layouts.  Without an original working file (psd, ai, etc..), I found myself trying my hand at re-creating that logo for them.

This came out of last year's effort to create more info on SoCalFurs about our sub-regional groups.  Now with a handy map, our info page features over 4 different sub-regional groups in SoCal.  With the improved contrast of IEFA's new logo, I was able to add it to the map (updated whenever I get new info) easily.  Keeping the brown shades of the original logo, it contrasts just right to the shades that make up each county in our map.  

If you are in the Riverside/San Bernardino area, than be sure to check out the IEFA (Inland Empire Furry Association) on Meetup.com or Yahoo Group .
