This collaborative effort with the help of creative expert Alissa Nogle was launched December 2016. Alissa wanted a professional portfolio website to show potential employers’ examples of her work. She also wanted it to be different than the typical portfolio website. She wanted to be able to easily add her own content going forward and something that was easily maintainable, so we choose to go with WordPress since she had some familiarity with the admin side of things.
Bolton & Menk needed to allow municipal and civil project managers update and edit their own content for client projects they were working on. It is something Bolton & Menk has been doing for several years, but they were using older technology to get them out there and was not working anymore for their needs. The old way is to use basic HTML and build out pages one by one and upload them to the web server. This made it difficult for people without HTML or web server knowledge to be able to update content easily.
The City of Prior Lake needed a site to inform the public about a busy intersection project that will affect the Downtown Prior Lake area. It needed to be customized to to match the cities branding as well as provide timely information to everyone who wanted to find out more. It also needed to be mobile friendly and accessible to as many people as possible. I created this project site as a sub-site of our WordPress Multi-site setup that I talked about in the previous post.
