Clever Words

Clever Words needed some help to sort out their website.

Clever Words home page

The owner had made a good attempt at doing their own site but came unstuck trying to move beyond being a blog site.

A booking facility for the owner's writing courses was added as well as making it more search engine friendly.

Front Sliders

The client liked an effect used on the Australian Writer's Centre website. The front page had an interactive effect on the services tiles. Upon the mouse hovering the coloured square would gently slide up revealing more information. The "learn more" button also went grey when the mouse hovered over it.

This site was offline in October 2016, a rough capture of it is at the web archive, http://web.archive.org/web/20150405080532/http://www.cleverwords.com.au/

It has since been redesigned.
