Sand in My Suitcase

Responsive Web Design, Development

Sand in My Suitcase is a popular travel blog managed by award-winning writers Janice and George Mucalov. They were looking for a new responsive WordPress theme and a bigger, bolder design that really popped and showcased their incredible travel photography.

The biggest challenge with this project was that Sand in My Suitcase gets so much traffic that taking the website offline at any point wasn’t feasible. I set up a dynamic staging site that allowed us to play with the design without any impact to the live site while still pulling updated post content so that when the time came to go live with the new design, it was a simple transition with no downtime.

I also did quite a bit of customization to the theme’s php files in order to get the exact features they were looking for, resulting in a beautifully responsive travel blog.
