Front End Description

We worked with their in-house designer to create multiple custom views that are responsive (Bootstrap) and resize for desktops, tablets, and phones. We created the previous WordPress theme back in 2011 and were excited to give it an updated look and feel.

Back End Description

There is a ton of custom development that makes adding complex page layouts and content a breeze. We also utilized custom post types as well as custom shortcodes to make everything as easy as possible.

Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts

After working with a few large scale "do it all" themes - I saw a lot of extra code and complexity. I worked hard with this theme to allow the client to create complex content using simplified logic (instead of the other way around).
