I redesigned the Meadow’s Mirth website (back in January of this year) as a custom WordPress theme. Even though it’s been up for over half a year, I thought it might be nice to give a little more detail on the project. Here’s what the site looked like before:
I actually designed this site for Jean and Josh, the owners of Meadow’s Mirth, way back in the day. It was one of the first websites I ever created and coded. At the time, it was quite the envy of some of the other organic farmers in their community, but lately it was starting to feel pretty dated. It was definitely time for an update.
