Sam Hurd is an extremely talented photographer from Washington D.C. He’s also a hell of a nice guy. We worked together over the course of several weeks and what seemed like several hundred thousand emails to create his site. It includes a grid-style portfolio and a custom-tailored product review area that I think was my favorite part of this project to create.
The site makes heavy use of an extremely versatile WordPress portfolio creation plugin I wrote a while back called Folio Buddy that lets Sam create a number of custom layouts throughout the site on his own without having to do any extra coding.
The logo and overall aesthetic style was created by the very talented Harrison Brandon. I simply took his work, added a few design embellishments, and turned it into a custom WordPress/Genesis theme.
