WordPress Websites for Good Causes

July 12th, 2012

If it looks like I haven’t been too busy in the last year, it’s because I’ve not been working on my freelance portfolio, but rather I’ve been working on dozens of exciting projects at 7Summits. Since joining the team in November of 2011, I’ve really beefed up my object-oriented Javascript, LAMP stack application development, and WordPress plugin and theme skills. And of course, I’ve become quite familiar with Jive, the social business platform 7Summits specializes in.

7Summits is not only a global player, but also an active member in the local community. I developed a new website for the Penfield Children’s Center, which is a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to help infants and young children with and without disabilities to reach their full potential through education, therapy services and family programs. I also created the website for The Wisconsin Independent Life College, a non-profit college serving adults with Autism who desire continued learning.

These projects were both fun to work on given how important the designs were. It’s been great to get a small break from the admin-heavy corporate sites built for Jive, and work on some gorgeous and fulfilling projects.
