The Drake R. Porter showcase website was the first project we developed as part of the Wild Code School curriculum.
The instruction was to develop a responsive showcase website for a fictional photographer. We were free to choose the story behind it but we were required to use only CSS3 and HTML5 (no framework).
We decided to make use of as many features as possible. For instance, we used CSS grid, CSS flexbox, CSS linear-gradients, HTML5 new semantic structural tags among others.
To underline the different features, we decided to do something quite unexpected. It is about a fictional reporter that travels around the world searching for illegal and surprising products. To hide the access of his website, we made a fake repelling public website (Drake R Porter). The real website (Dark Reporter) can only be accessed by clicking on the copyright.
NB: The website is ugly on purpose and the information displayed is not to be taken seriously.
