Mode of Style

Mode of Style is a lifestyle magazine and the personal blog of Kristina Bergwall, a Swede living in Leeds! Her blog focuses on beauty and fashion product reviews, photography projects, cooking, and interior design tips.

The Brief

The website was originally hosted on Blogger, which meant the ability to customise the design and layout was limited. The site also needed a design overhaul to make it responsive. We worked with Kristina to design a new website and port all the content across from Blogger to WordPress.

The Process

The first task was to look at the type of content that existed on the website and then design a visual interface around this. We designed some visuals before building the front-end of the site so we could test how it worked across devices with varying screen sizes.

Next, we moved across all the content from Blogger to our lovely new WordPress site, and continued to build the website around this. We have found time and time again that following this content-first approach results in the best development process.

The Platform

We chose to work with WordPress due to the editorial simplicity of the platform. It's easy to use, and easy to build on. WordPress is practically designed for this type of site, so was the platform of choice for this project.

Matt and Will are exceptionally easy to work with, from the understanding of what I wanted to achieve to the process and execution, they got it all spot on.
