GameAccess Blog for SpecialEffect

SpecialEffect approached me to work with them to create a new hub for all of their video and written tutorial and help content.

The breif was to build a fully accessible and responsive site to allow fast access to valuable resources for those who need them.

The site is built on top of a WordPress 5 back-end using Gutenberg editor and features a custom gutenberg block ro allow the addition of transcripts ot embedded videos. The theme is fully bespoke and includes accessbility features such as text resizing, light / dark mode switch and inverted colours option.

Due to the volume of content being created, the site needed to employ a powerful filtering and search mechanism, this was based on facet-wp but was heavily customised to meet the client’s requirements.
