Susan Verde launches new responsive website featuring her new children’s book, ‘The Museum’, out now on Abrams Books
We are happy to announce a new responsive website for Susan Verde! Susan Verde recently published a new children’s book via Abrams Books called ‘The Museum’. It’s about a girl’s adventure through an Art Museum that culminates into a exciting exploration of creative inspiration when the girl is confronted with the excitement over expressing her own piece of art. The book has wonderful illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds, and has already garnered great reviews.
Susan is a talented author with a vigorous creative spirit. We’ve had a great time working with her to create a website that is easy for her to manage and flexible enough to enable the presentation of her creative ideas. Built on the WordPress platform, the responsive site features a custom WordPress theme that allows her to manipulate content using principles found in more traditional CMS platforms, yet still enjoy the ease and familiarity of blogging that WordPress does so well. Her site is optimized for SEO and optimized for all devices and browsers including mobile.
We recommend heading over to her site at www.susanverde.com, to check out all the fun articles she is sharing that will inspire you to be creative. This is mandatory advice if you have children. We wish Susan Verde and her new book much success!
