Project Description

For my author website and blog, Majanka Verstraete (which is weird to say because it’s my name), I wanted to design a different front page than the rest of the pages. I wanted the front page to show all my books.

The front page shows a banner slideshow. All banners highlight one of my books. Under that, are three widgets, one for picture books, chapter books and young adult books. All banners here have been created by me as well, inspired by my books’ covers. Clicking the banners leads to a page.

The second image shows the rest of the front page. Left is an author bio, along wiht picture. Right are pictures of all my books, in different categories, and social media links.

The third image shows one of the pages. Page content is on the left, sidebar on the right.

On the fourth image are the tabs, for “illustrations”, “book excerpts” and “media kit”. The last image is a close up of the section that appears after every post, including a sign-up box for the newsletter, author bio and social sharing links.
