Small Business Website

For “Design for Web Content” I had to create a website for a hypothetical Small Business, and I decided to go for a Vintage fashion Shop based in Dover and focused on 80s style.Here the link of the first version of the website made exclusively for the desktop version just by using HTML and CSS: Small Business Website (first version).

Then after learning the basics of Javascript, PHP understood the principles of Responsive Web Design (RWD) and other fundamental parts that compose a well-designed website I improved my first version arriving at the Small Business Website (second phase).
