University of Mary Washington Then & Now

Tools: cPanel, Installatron Applications Installer, WordPress (Child Theme), iMovie, Adobe Photoshop CC, CSS

In the Spring of 2014, I took the senior seminar History course, History 428: Adventures in Digital History. In this course, we had to create websites that explored a topic in digital history. Our mission was to create and display a digital exhibit of then and now photographs depicting the University of Mary Washington’s Fredericksburg campus dating from the school’s establishment in 1908 through the present time. We also did our best to provide context for each of the photos in an effort to portray the evolution of student life and campus structure. The site has a responsive WordPress child theme, which I created, featuring customized HTML and CSS elements I designed and incorporated myself. I also took many of the pictures on the site, and create some of the “blended” then and now pictures using Adobe Photoshop. View Site
