We at Beaver Group were asked to produce a Wordpress template from scratch for ACO Sales.
Although there were limitations with the budget, cms functionality was still an essential part of the build. Because of this we decided to use Wordpress over our own bespoke system. This meant that we could keep costs down while still keeping the project in budget.
Although we had worked with Wordpress previously, this was the first time we had built a site from scratch. We used Chris Coyier's Blank Wordpress Theme as the basis for the build and worked our way through each section of the site.
Wordpress is a great tool for projects where budget is restricted. You can have a site up and running in a matter of minutes or you can tweak and develop the code yourself for a bespoke look and functionality.
