The eagle eyed among you will have noticed the new social media icons at the bottom of the website. Among the collection of familar names you will spot a couple of video websites – YouTube and Vimeo. This is a small indication of what’s to come in the next year or so.
So here it is. The news area of the website. Just one of a number of improvements that have been added with the redesign of the website. The News area is the blog for this website and doesn’t replace the Richard Flint Photography Blog. Any new pages, changes to the website or exciting additions to the functionality of the website will be reported here. I may also add a few comments every now and again.
So why the new website style? The old design was OK, wasn’t it? Well, yes, but a number of factors came into play that mean’t that the old theme was becoming problematic (lack of support, bugs and other issues) but the biggest reason was flexibility. The new website design enables new components like video, galleries and more to be added in the blink of an eye.
The first phase of this project concerns the redesign of the whole site. Phase two is more specific – the implementation of a new gallery slideshow system that can be viewed on a variety of systems from Desktop to mobile phone.
