DEMO
Lifestyle Blog

A blog website for Lifestyle, Design, Fashion and Travel News.
Developed as a beskope theme and implemented later in Wordpress.
I applied a sleek and luxurious style, with plenty of empty space and a clear format.
The theme is fully responsive and the colors of choice are black, white, grey and blue.

The header is fixed and of a minimal height and contains, except for the logo, the four general categories of available articles, as well as the search utility which gives results by title, content and tags.

A short and wide advertisement was added just under the header, according to Google best practices.
A mobile-friendly carousel slideshow with the top articles as selected by the user is the first element of the page.
The rest of the articles appear in differentiated positions by order of input date.

A subscription option was added for a weekly update.

In the sidebar were placed an advertisement, upcoming events and a list of tags for a more intuitive content navigation.
In individual Category pages a more simple approach was adopted with the carousel on top and the rest of the articles in two column grid.
In individual Article pages social sharing was added using the miniOrange plugin and a comments section powered by Disqus.
The most popular news show in the sidebar and recommended news, relative to the current article, right at the end of it.
The content of the website is arranged by specialized PHP loops and various image sizes are generated through customized functions.
