Project: Switch Era
Visit Site

From 2017 to 2019, I designed and managed a WordPress-based video game reviews website called Switch Era. Like my other WordPress themes, Switch Era was built from scratch without relying on any other free or premium themes as a base. As a result, the theme is uniquely tailored to Switch Era and maximizes its content for strong SEO and a user experience that makes browsing categories a breeze. Key features of Switch Era include:

  • Navigation hierarchy based on the site's most-visited pages and categories.
  • Quick access to user info, social media links, and search bar.
  • A slider that cycles through the five most-recent posts in the "Reviews" category.
  • Five different WordPress loops on the home page, all contained within their own clickable slider. The categories are color-coded for easy browsing.
  • A sidebar featuring the latest tweets from the site Twitter account.
  • Social media integration so that new posts are automatically shared on Twitter and Facebook.
  • Ubuntu font for headers and Open-Sans for paragraphs make content eye-catching and easy to read.
  • Social media buttons on articles allow readers to share links with a single click.
  • Fully mobile-responsive design across desktop, tablet, and phone.
  • Navigation bar uses fixed positioning, so users will never lose the menu button.
  • Clean design on mobile devices makes for an enoyable user-experience and decreased bounce rate.
