Bayou Country Children Museum Website

This site was actually completed in 2008, but it was recently revised with some minor design revisions and upgrades. I’m displaying the most recent screenshots for this project.

The Bayou Country Children Museum is an interactive museum featuring displays and information related to the bayou region of south Louisiana. Initially the website is being used to communicate the progress and attract donations for the museum construction. The website design was initially completed by Eye Candy Creative, and they requested my skills to build the final site using an accessible content management system.

This website uses WordPress for content management with a few WordPress plugins to add features such as mailing lists communication, contact forms, and event notifications. The Bayou Country Children Museum website uses a custom child theme using my personal Funbox theme framework. The custom theme allows the creation of separate custom views based on simple WordPress custom fields. The entire website uses the jQuery javascript framework to add custom font effects (Sifr), web browser compatibility fixes, and flash animation displays.
