Huey Long

The Huey Long web site was a great pleasure to work on. Thanks to the hard work of CDF Web Solutions I had an amazing library of assets at my fingertips. All kinds of photographs from Huey Long’s life, scans of newspaper articles, and even musical screenplays. I was asked to create a site with an art deco feel, which gave me a chance to experiment with a new design style. The true challenge for this project was creating templates that could be used to build out the entire site, while accomodating all the different types of content.

Because of the sheer number of pages, it was necessary to use dropdowns for navigation. I spent quite a bit of time working on the design of these, and am very pleased with how they turned out. The end result is unique in that there are two styles, one for the selected section and one for the other sections. Both styles integrate nicely into the header and make the site easy to use.
