A mobile first, responsive website design.

The goal of this project was to update the state agency template. It wasn’t mobile friendly or responsive and I wanted to incorporate some of the design elements from the design. I started with the base of the main website, updated the Foundation version and enhanced the mobile menu. Another goal was to ensure the template was flexible enough to work with many different agencies' website content.

Hi! I'm Leslie

I have the best job in the world! I design websites! I have a passion for web design and love creating unique, sophisticated and user friendly designs. Web design is a field that constantly changes. I read as much as I can from my favorite books which are the A Book Apart Books to blogs and articles.

My designer eyes are always working analyzing everything from the layout of a restaurant menu, the font choices in a book to the work-flow of purchasing products or signing up for different websites and software.

When I do take a break, I love exercising my other creative passions including painting, coloring and crafting. To learn more about me, you can find me on LinkedIn or Twitter.
