Project Description

I Heart Reading is a book review website and blog, focusing mostly on books, book reviews, author interviews, guest posts and book-related memes.

The design was built on the WordPress platform. It’s a child-theme for the Genesis Framework that I made to fit this blog. It also runs on a bunch of plugins.

The requirements for this website were the following:

  • Two sidebars. There needed to be a lot of content in the sidebars, so not to make everything look cluttered, I added two sidebars.
  • Two navigation menus. The top menu leads to pages, the secondary menu (under the banner) leads to different categories.
  • Newsletter sign up needed to get a cute design.
  • The footer has three widget areas to show links and banners to different websites. The background shows a cityscape.
  • The top banner includes some bookshelves, and the logo.

Overall, I wanted a website design that looked cute but professional at the same time, and that could handle all the content this website has.
