Unearthed Comics

Responsive Website plus Graphic Design Using Hand-Drawn Elements

Unearthed Comics is a side project of mine, where I post ramblings in the form of one-panel webcomics. I needed a logo, brand, website and marketing plan to get my new webcomic off the ground.

I started with a hand-drawn logo along with some of my fun characters. I then created the layout for the website and the graphic components. I ran a keyword analysis so I can get my webcomics to rank higher in organice searches and implemented those results within the backend of the site. I integrated MailChimp.com’s newsletter sign up form for lead capture, a sharing widget, and searchable options. The technical development of the site itself included:

  • Logo and branding design
  • Site planning and marketing
  • Customized design elements
  • Self-hosted CMS-based site
  • Fully-integrated WordPress administrative editing interface
  • Responsive design for dynamic layout adjustment based on screen size for desktop and mobile devices
  • Current, Valid HTML5
  • jQuery image sliders
  • Server-side processing in PHP
  • MySQL database content management
  • Advanced comic category “filtering” functionality

Additionally, to make this project complete, I brought the branding through the MailChimp newsletter template and my Facebook FanPage.
