Ipswich River Watershed Association

ipswichriver.org

A new look for the Ipswich River Watershed Association. The team there was already using Wordpress with success so I designed and developed a new theme for them to update the presentation of key info, calls to action, their blogs and numerous pages of content.

This new theme is responsive which is standard operating procedure at GWD. It being responsive just means that the site adapts the layout and everything works regardless of whether you are on a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop.

Together we revamped the information architecture, organizing the information to make the site easier to navigate and use.

Another standard operating procedure here is to install best of breed plugins. There are thousands of plugins out there and many are buggy, bloated and unreliable. Every website I make benefits from top notch plugins for: security, backup, caching, forms, shortcodes, lossless image compression etc. Of these the most crucial plugins are for security and backup. There are many, many attacks on Wordpress sites these days (because of it's popularity) and you can't be too careful.

National Protective Systems

The primary goal of the National Protective Systems website is clearly communicate the general nature of their business. We hired an illustrator to produce custom icons as well as an infographic which is animated on the homepage. I customized a premium Wordpress theme from a trusted theme vendor, creating a custom presentation layer for the client based on a robust theme framework featuring many page layout options, shortcodes and other useful features. I selected plugins from my current "best-of" list of tried-and-true plugins for security, backup, usability, seo, analytics etc. The website has plenty of scope for expansion should the client choose to add more content. It is also, being a Wordpress website, one that the client can log into and edit/add/delete elements of by himself.
