Secondary Breast Cancer campaign

I was commissioned to build a Secondary Breast Cancer campaign website for Breast Cancer Care. Images created in Photoshop were provided, which had been created by a graphic design company. My job was to take these pictures and use them to build a functioning website using WordPress, with a form to enable visitors to leave messages of support, and prominent links with social networking websites.

WordPress was the content management system preferred by the client.

The main advantage of using WordPress for this website was to enable visitors to leave a comment and have all those messages appear on-screen for others to read. So far over 300 messages of support have been submitted via a form on the website and displayed on a page for the world to read.

Slideshow on the home page

The carousel (or slideshow) at the top of the home page automatically switches between the portraits and stories of four women who’ve experienced secondary breast cancer. This technique enables a website to pack content into a small but prominent area of the screen, and make good use of striking images.

Note the rounded corners on boxes.

This is done with a CSS technique that doesn’t usually work in Internet Explorer 8 – but I used some Javascript code called Curvy Corners to overcome this limitation.
