Jenni Ward is a sculptor, art instructor and owner of Earth Art Studio.

Back in 2015, ZapTuba built and delivered a completely new website for Jenni Ward to showcase her nature-inspired work and to establish an online shop for her classes and a selection of her work (for details about the 2015 project, click HERE.)

In 2017, as Jenni’s art has evolved with more installations and experiences of her pieces, she wanted to update her website to better showcase her work through more dynamic and responsive galleries, and through videos documenting the moments her work is installed in nature. Coincidentally, at the end of 2017, the parent theme on which Jenni’s website was built, was officially retired. 2018 was an opportune time to choose a new parent WordPress & WooCommerce powered theme and implement a brand new child theme integrating all of aspects she loved about her previous child theme and incorporating all of the improvements Jenni wanted to make.

Project Highlights

  • modernize the portfolio galleries
  • customize the look & feel using a combination of a custom child theme and the customization options offered by the WooCommerce parent theme, Storefront
  • integrate all applicable customizations from Jenni’s previous child theme into the new, responsive child theme, adapting the customizations to the new parent theme infrastructure as needed
  • website content updates and maintenance, as needed
