I recently put together a WordPress website for my colleague, Mark Phillips. Mark wanted a website to showcase his graphic design skills, present his resume, and display his references to hiring managers and potential employers. To accomplish these goals, I used the following WordPress plugins:
Wow Slider – Animated jQuery, responsive slider – for the homepage
Jetpack – All in one plugin for the galleries, light boxes, contact form and mobile functionality. Comes preloaded in Go Daddy.
DirtySuds Embed PDF – Embed PDF’s, using Google Docs Viewer – for the resume and references
Good Luck Mark in your graphic design endeavors. All the best to you!
PS – I used the responsive Twenty Twelve theme. Also, mad props to girliemac for providing the easy-to-understand, Mac-Style Icon Dock code.
