Like Japan Website Revamp

Completed on Wednesday, October 19, 2016 for CC Information Limited

As the name implies, LikeJapan is a blog content website about Japan. The articles mainly focuses on travel, entertainment, and culture in the land where the sun never sets.

Having only been running for a little over 6 months when I starting this project, the website was initially built on Drupal templates. My job was to redesign it with an unique aesthetic and improve its usability.
