Watching The World Cup

A couple of years ago my friend Matt coded watchingtheworldcup.com, while he was working at Enjoythis. The site was and still is great. That’s the kind of sites I personally like, simple in structure and with awesome content. Fast forward to 2018 and here I am, working on something related to that awesome project.

The Book

The site is becoming a book and the book needed a website, like pretty much everything else these days. Matt was busy fixing antennas and being famous (just kidding) so he didn’t have time to help Jane, the photographer, with this project. And you know how these things work: he asked me and I said yes because I love to help friends and friends’ friends. Plus I’m a fan of this type of projects because are generally quick and fun to work on.

Tech and other info

The site couldn’t be any simpler. It’s a static html site with just a bit of JavaScript. Just to be clear, I’m the least important part of this project. The design is not mine, credit for that goes to Patrick Fry and Jane took the photos obviously. Site is set in Work Sans. I used Flickity for the slider and the big image gallery is custom made.

What else?

There’s not much else to say really. This was just me trying to be helpful. Go buy the book if you’re into football and photography. It’s a limited edition and the price is excellent. And let me know if you find bugs on the site. If you like the photos and the design, send @janestockdale and @MrPatrickFry some love. Last but not least, you can have a look at the site at watchingtheworldcup.com/thebook.
