Mini Website Review for JoyAfterCancer.com
A few simple design changes was all it took from taking this okay website to one the client now loves. It’s not a full-of-feature site. It’s sleek and simple and fulfills the Number 1 Criteria for any website: It does the job it was designed to do per the owner’s intended purpose and goal.

Before we started, Peggy couldn’t put her finger on what seemed off, but she did feel that something wasn’t quite right.
The first thing I noticed was the opt-in box. Its colors weren’t harmonious to the rest of the design, so we tweaked the colors. Then we concentrated on re-wording her freebie offer, as well as tweaking the layout and wording about Peggy herself in the top widget.
The second After screenshot shows a few more changes. Theme was changed from Thesis to Genesis with Prose child theme (although we could have accomplished the visual changes in Thesis). The headline and body fonts changed, and per Peggy’s request, we featured one of her Google Hangouts interviews in the sidebar just with simple coding to add a post link and image from her blog. A few additional changes were made to her Blog page, as well as the sidebars.
