Montecristo Social Club was an initiative by Montecristo Cigars to create a website where news, events, and product releases could be discovered and discussed by the Montecristo online community. The site ended up being more of a news and event blog service, though we did integrate further social community functionality down the road.
After I completed the designs, they were handed off to another team to implement. You can check out the finished product at montecristosocialclub.com
When I made this site, I decided it was the perfect time to learn CSS Grid. At the time of me writing this, 0ctober 2nd, 2018, CSS Grid only has partial support in IE 11.
Since I intend for this site to be an example of what I can do, and not a comprehensive commercial product, I’m ok with that sacrifice in usability, especially since signs point to IE11 eventually adopting full CSS Grid support.
So with that said, I’d recommend using a different browser, such as Microsoft Edge. If you got cursed by a witch or something and have to use IE, you can contact me at email@example.com or you can check out my
Linkedin, Dribbble, or Instagram.
