Phoenix & Cricket Website Design

In early 2019 I was asked to help a friend design a portfolio for his science journalism work. He used some online services prior as an archive but wanted something that complimented his personal style. I helped design the site layout and created a custom WordPress theme, which he could then post his new articles and personal work to.

Lucas asked about making the layout look like the page of a book. He liked the style on several news websites like NYTimes, which he also writes for on occasion. In addition, for the wider desktop front page, we talked about finding a place where both journalism and fictional work could be seen in tandem.
