Embroidery expert, Gloria Seaman Allen's companion website to her book of historic works from Washington DC.

District of Columbia Needlework

A custom WordPress theme was developed to match Dr. Allen's book and so various design elements were taken from the printed pages and re-created in the site design. Although the aesthetic is 18th century, the approach to responsive design is very modern enabling the content to adjust to the size of the browser (desktop, tablet, mobile). The comprehensive information is continually updated, through a user-friendly WordPress back end, so that Dr. Allen can share the most recent findings of her research.
