This begins as a GUI file that Phractle can also provide with his design services that will result as an interactive local prototype. This is not fully functional as it won’t be live until upload.
Phractle breaks down all the elements in the design into separate image pieces and text, then craft them into sprite sheets for load time optimization. After hand coding the interface prototype, we can plug it into a web platform.
The main platform he uses to develop interfaces for is the wordpress platform. Essentially he make a child theme of one of their defaults and code it up from the inside out to look and work like the new design and working prototype.
