About The Project
As a photographer Andrew has many photos on his website, so one of the main goals for the project was to keep site speed up to load photos quickly. To achieve this a custom WordPress theme was built that uses Vue.js on the front end. All of the data for the site is loaded into Vue using the WordPress Rest API which allows all content to be loaded asynchronously so that content could be viewed without refreshing the page. Each photo in the gallery is also loaded on demand to further reduce load time.
It was also important to be able to match Andrew’s branding, the site has a minimalistic look to put greater emphasis on Andrew’s stellar photos.
