RETURN TO PORTFOLIO
 
The "East Kingdom Seneschal" is the (East Coast) Regional Vice-President of the Society for Creative Anachronism.

I have been the webmaster for the people holding that office since 2009.

The challenge for this website was to present the information in a straight-forward fashion, while including medieval elements in the design. I reorganized all the information on the previous website into 6 categories.

2009: I used an excerpt from the Bayeau Tapestry as a header for the page. All the colors were chosen to complement the graphic.

Using CSS, when a user hovers over a navigation link, the color changes and details about that link appear in a box in the upper left corner of the page. This menu was adapted from a design at Eric A. Meyer's CSS Edge website.

2013: when the office changed hands, the new officer asked for a new look for the website. It was simple to alter the CSS to change the color settings.

Because so many people were using phones and tablets to view websites, I reworked the site with "responsive" code.

CSS detects the size of the device the visitor is using, and presents either full-size page, or a smaller header image and a "menu" button that links to the menu at the bottom of the page.

2017: The incoming officer asked for another redesign, based purple, green and gold. I used Google Fonts to give the headers a hand-written look.
