Purely Web Design

This is the WordPress theme for my portfolio website, built from scratch.

The the layout is based upon my own minimal responsive HTML boilerplate, which uses inline-block elements to provide a collapsing layout across screen sizes.

The portfolio section uses the jQuery plugin MixItUp to provide a sortable gallery of projects, managed via a custom post type.

Following the initial development I set a performance budget with the aim of breaking the 1000ms barrier. I managed to reduce the render time to between 650ms and 1300ms (dependant on page) using a combination of:

  • Conditionally loaded assets
  • gzipping
  • img srcset
  • File concatenation
  • File Minification
  • Image compression
