The California Endowment

Custom WordPress theme development

I was approached by a digital agency to handle the complete development and launch of the California Endowment site based on provided designs.

Utilizing coding best practices for WordPress, CSS3 and HTML5, I developed a complex custom theme with 7 separate color schemes and 12 custom post types for this content-heavy site.

The project launched on time and within budget, with the client being able to easily add and change content since delivery.
