News Archives - Katrina's Design

RED Academy student projects

My name is Katrina. I’m a Vancouver-based front-end web developer and designer.

For the last five years I customized many WordPress websites, managed e-commerce stores, social media accounts and designed newsletters for e-mail marketing campaigns. I work with WordPress themes, customizing them for clients with tight timelines and smaller budgets.
In the fall of 2015, I decided it was time to REALLY learn how to code and enrolled into an intensive study at RED Academy. I quickly discovered that coding was something I really liked and has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

I’m looking to grow professionally as a web developer. I want to be involved in projects that I can be proud of, join an amazing team, and advance my design and development career.

This website will have a new design soon, meanwhile to view my projects as a Web Developer student visit this link –

Mobile Web Design And WordPress

I would like to share with you the new article that just got published on Byz Blog:

Is Your Mobile Web Design Responsive?

Responsive mobile web design is a relatively new design technique that enables webpages to adapt their layout to the viewing environment.  When using it, one single website can adjust to display effectively on all web-viewing platforms. No matter if your site is shown on a desktop, a tablet device, an iPhone or a Blackberry, the site’s look is reformatted and arranged for optimal display, while making it easy to read and browse without the tedious need to zoom in or slide the pages from one side to the other.

Following is an example of a website that uses responsive design:

Responsive design and WordPress

If you have a WordPress website or are planning to start one soon you may want to consider using a mobile web design theme.

In the last few months several responsive themes have been developed. This means that you have a large variety to choose from. Even the WordPress default theme, “TwentyEleven” is responsive. My favourite theme providers Elegant Themes, StudioPress and Woothemes all have beautiful new themes that are mobile responsive.

Before choosing a theme confirm that the content is displayed logically on a mobile device. You can use this free tool provided by StudioPress to check the behavior of any website on some of the more pervasive mobile devices, i.e. iPhone, iPad and small phones.
