Case Study

The Flores Financial Services is built on the fabulous ExpressionEngine CMS. The site uses only one third-party module — Freeform.

The Design

I designed the Flores Financial site for maximum readability. Since the old site was based on a 800px wide layout, I wanted to open it up a little bit more and let it breathe. I did this by utilizing the 960 grid framework.

With a nice grid-based layout in place, I also wanted to make the text easy to read. I decided on 14px Calibri as my main body font. Coupled with a 24px line-height, the text is very legible throughout the site. Since I was using a sans-serif for the body text, I decided on one of my favorite serif fonts for the heading text — Cambria. The contrast between the heading and body text makes reading the site extremely easy on the eyes.

Members-only Area

One of the more noteworthy features of the Flores Financial site is its members-only area. This area allows clients to download special forms and access important financial calculators. Access to this area is administered by the ExpressionEngine CMS.
