Creative Council is the portfolio website of Burnley Council’s graphics unit, designed and built in-house (mainly by myself and MJ Hindman). We do all sorts of graphic design, illustration, photography, web design, branding, signs, email marketing and, well, all sorts of stuff.

Like a lot of the websites we’ve developed it is based on WordPress with a completely bespoke theme. The theme showcases our work with a large carousel area at the top, which uses jquery to repurpose the WordPress gallery feature. The carousel can even feature video instead of images – all images were kept to a 16:9 ratio to allow video and pictures to sit alongside each other and remain consistent. 

That’s me, on the far right, by the way.
