The customer requirements were very specific for this project -
a clean, minimalist design; no embellishments or patterns; let the
images be the central focus for the design.
We created a one page website, which is quite unusual for an
accommodation provider, with large images, lots of white space and
very simple navigation. The result reveals stunning imagery - both
photography and the customers own artwork, movement on the page is
smooth, elegant and portrays the customer's ethos of simple food
and quality service in elegant, comfortable surroundings.

This website was built in umbraco using a design provided by the
In collaboration with the designer, who provided the design in
photoshop, we broke down the layers into their individual elements,
which makes the website technically searchable, with very clean
code and is very easy to maintain and modify.

The purpose of this website is to promote an architectual
business by displaying the client's portfolio of projects.
The design of this site focused on having the absolute minimum
number of pages as possible as well as a fast loading image
The technical bits:
The website was developed in Umbraco and utilises the DAMP package
for easy image loading by the client and fast image loading. It is
entirely Razor driven (no XSLT) and uses jQuery & jQuery cycle
for the image gallery.

We've just launched an umbraco CMS website for Geraldine Auto
Restorations. They have a large gallery of work-in-progress,
and the images are incredibly fast loading. It features a new media
plug-in where the user can crop thumbnails (see the image above)
from the larger image within the website, so there's no need for
photo manipulation software, with the added bonus of reducing image
duplication within the CMS.

Umbraco 4.0+ introduced the ability to inherit document types.
This is a great feature for keeping document types consistent
between pages and even between sites.
I find that 95% of my document types share the same properties.
Once you have discovered what these properties are create a new
document type that contains these properties. For my sites this
* Page header
* Body text
* Page title
* meta description
* and the Umbraco hidden page switch (umbracoNaviHide)
Now when you go to create a new document type set its master
document type to be Page.
Most of you are probably already using this feature. My simple
tip is once you have created a Page document type, right click on
it and export it to file.
Now whenever you start a new Umbraco project, right click on
document types and import the file into your new project. This will
keep your document properties consistent between projects.
