Full screen action photos
Sarah, an accomplished athlete, has many great photos from photoshoots and events. We highlighted them with a home page slideshow of full-screen photos. The slideshow uses CSS only to maintain the speed and performance of the page and highlighting the many of Sarah’s roles and accomplishments.
Highlight Speaking Engagements
Sarah has done many speaking engagements so one page of the site is set aside to highlight her client list. The same page also contains her up-to-the-minute tweets on Twitter, as she loves to engage with competitors and fans.
Stacey recently designed my website, AlwaysTri.com and she did an excellent job! She helped me build a website that works for my business today and that I can build upon for the future. I have worked with several other web designers before and Stacey is far and away the best I’ve ever worked with. She is a talented designer, and has a depth of skills and knowledge in website optimization that was critical. I was also grateful for her thoroughness and attention to detail – which is important since websites are viewed on so many devices today there is a lot to consider in building a modern website. I would highly recommend working with Sunlit Studios on your next website project.
