Custom Headless WordPress Development

When Testudo came to us with their vision for a transparent marketplace for fine art sales, we knew we’d need to build a custom foundation that would allow us to start lean and build upon it for years to come. The standard WordPress front-end architecture wouldn’t cut it either in function or scalability, this was going to have to be special.

So we took it to the next level and build a “headless” WordPress implementation which allowed us to leverage the back-end content management of WordPress to power a front-end purpose built for speed and scalability.

Collaborative UI/UX design process

Because we were designing for an entirely fresh concept, with an entirely fresh brand and evolving vision, our design process was focused on being quick and iterative as we worked closely alongside the founders to bring their dream to life. The first major phase of design included building an interactive demonstration in Adobe XD that would allow Testudo to pitch the concept while we continued to refine the design, interactions, and develop functionality.

The future of fine art is in (y)our hands.

We can’t lie, the opportunity to work on a project so fresh and with a client so trusting and open to collaboration was a dream come true. Sharing in their dream brought out some of our best work and challenged us to think about the user experience in new ways as we brought it to life.

Not only did they understand the complexity of our needs, but they also had the incredible foresight to anticipate challenges before they arose.  As every part of the process was collaborative and iterative, the partnership was very strong. We appreciated the opportunity to provide ample feedback while also relying on build/create’s expertise in visual design, UX, and engineering to always find the best possible solution.
