WordCamp Brisbane is a WordPress based conference that ran on July 22-23 at QUT in Brisbane, Australia, that I helped to organise, primarily working on the design aspects.

Designing The Website

In the early stages of planning, we had to get the website up and define a design style for the conference. Because of limitations with the system in which we would be working for the website, we were only able to make CSS changes and work with the existing DOM structure.

I mocked up the initial home page design in Photoshop and myself and the team were half laughing at it being more of a design wishlist, because we weren’t sure if it was entirely possible with the existing markup. But hey, challenges are good and we were willing to try it out.
