I wanted a catchy hero style masthead with big fonts. We went the Oswald font for our headings. The main brand color is a soft yellow, and we used a similar tone for the masthead photo overlay. The white heading complemented nicely with the soft yellow.
One of my big early challenges as a new developer was figureing out how to use two logos in the header (one black, one white) when the header dropdown triggers.
I used this project as a way to help me learn Bootstrap. It was my first Bootstrap website and so I used a template called Creative. I also played around with AOS Animation for on scroll animations but I ultimately preferred the site and UX without the animation.
The original template used jQuery for smooth-scrolling and the nav dropdown effect. I didn't have much experience with jQuery, but it was easy to catch on quickly.
This was also an opportunity to learn Netlify, where the site currently lives.
