Expand Blue is my primary website where I showcase my design projects and creative works. To begin the project, I created a flexible theme that could be modified to suit my needs while also adhering to the most popular website design conventions. My inspiration for creating the theme began while I was studying at London South Bank University. I wanted to create a website to display the work of our students. Being a fan of WordPress, I opted to create a custom theme instead of downloading one from the WordPress repository.
This decision was well-received by my tutors and classmates, and I eventually used the theme as my final design project. The theme boasts many built-in add-ons that are easily accessible in its features. By creating a theme from scratch, I was able to tailor it to my exact specifications, rather than trying to fit pre-existing templates to my needs. This approach gave me a great deal of flexibility in the design process and helped me achieve the desired aesthetic.
