Project Overview

Falcon Discovery provides discovery management for Fortune 500 companies.

Technologies Used:

Front End Description

The client wanted something minimal, and clean to present all their content. They wanted a number of javascript functionality: drop down menus, slideshows, accordions, etc. I used jQuery to handle all the tasks.

Back End Description

There are a number of custom admin panels as well as custom templates in place for this site in order for everything on the site to be editable and dynamic. There are custom admin panels for the slideshow, sidebar, and home page content and then custom page templates which dynamically create the accordion pages wherever you see them. The client does not need to put in any special code or divs.

Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts

Having content and then designing for that content makes more sense than designing something with content that does not exist. I am now a firm believer that content comes first.
