Default Driving Standards: The Website You Helped Create

Back in September, I asked forum members to help me create a car enthusiast demographic so that I could create a news website. That project is now complete.

Your input compelled me to create a media rich layout and develop the mobile site in parallel with the desktop site. It also helped me choose the categories listed in the navigation bar. Here's a snippet from my write up if you really care:

Quote:
News stories will feature anything from motorsport news to vehicle launches and specifications. Personal stories will feature ordinary people and their car-related adventures, advice columns such as “next car guides,” and data driven articles that teach readers to quantify lifetime ownership costs. Vehicle reviews will critique readers rides and, as the notoriety of Driving Standards grows, press cars, too. Do-it-yourself guides will cover everything from oil changes and washing techniques, to car-part coffee-tables and automotive knick-knacks. Classified ads will curate vehicle deals and beaters with project-car potential.
Turning this website into a functioning business would take a good deal more work. Instead of that, I plan to use the site as a portfolio. The assignment only required I make two functioning pages. You're welcome to visit the site and click on the one functioning link to my "Shift Knob Memento DIY," a topic you've already seen here on the forum. The layout will automatically adjust to best fit your device.

Driving Standards: The Website




I enjoyed making the site more than I expected. The challenge/reward cycle is quite rapid when compared to my primary studies in journalism. It's pretty cool to have coded the site from scratch, too. The only code I "borrowed" from another source was for the background gradients. Everything else was individually coded to resemble this crude sketch.
