Charity advent calendar

Myself and a colleague were approached to design and develop an advent calendar for Christmas 2012. It had to work on both desktop and mobile/tablet devices. And the wireframes for the design would be supplied. It also had to be linked in with the JustGiving donation engine and there would be a heavy emphasis on social media.

This seemed an obvious task for my vanilla Fluidal WordPress mobile-responsive theme. Along with some custom jQuery code for the window animations and to ensure that only the correct windows could be opened on the particular days, the site went live at the end of November 2012 and ultimately created a fantastic buzz for the charity on Twitter and Facebook.


  • Responsive, fluid design using my Fluidal boilerplate WordPress theme
  • All animations work on mobile and desktop
  • Integration with social media links
  • Easy to update each day by using normal WordPress posts
