The English Bookshop is a bookshop in St Antonin, France. It is unique in the sense that it only sells English books, in a French speaking area. I was offered the project when new owners acquired the shop and wanted to modernise some aspects. Working directly with a graphic designer, we were given the task of creating a suitable logo and fitting site. The site was required to show the location of the shop, a little background information and the contact details. The client also requested that she could change the content herself if needed.

As a CMS was required, I started the project installing WordPress. After installing a basic theme, I added my own elements, extra responsive JavaScript and a child style sheet. Luckily, I was provided with large high resolution photos of the town. Using these I integrated a large slider to the homepage. I also added some parallax scrolling effects using them as background images.
