Center for Global Strategies

Another great collaboration between myself and my associates at Mindflint Media was launched today: the Center for Global Strategies. CGS is an organization focused on bringing tolerance, understanding, and proper global economies among different cultures specifically in Africa, East Asia and the Middle East.

This great organization contacted us for a custom design, animated slideshow and map of initiatives and integration into the WordPress content management system for easy updates and blogs entries.

Yet another slick site for another great cause- cheers guys!

Mountain High Water

Today I launched a refitted site for my associates Mountain High Water. Mountain High offers quality products for large scale water purification (like for lakes, parks and golf courses). Eager to make updates to their website as business has grown, I recommended an upgrade to allow the site to run off a content management platform in order to ease their ability to keep their content up-to-date.

This version of the site features some new Flash highlights, better usability organization, more SEO friendly perma-linking, and a brand new cost-savings calculator. Lookin’ smooth, guys!

I’ve become a huge fan of WordPress lately. Its backend platform runs this blog and  a number of other sites I’ve developed for clients lately. I’ve worked with and built a number of website content management systems in my day and none of them were without their flaws. It seems like they either lack the options I’m looking for, or are too complex for my clients to manage. Its no good if they spend all their time trying to figure it out! Several I’ve made have worked out fine, but its quite an undertaking for just one developer.

Enter WordPress 2.7. I’m very impressed. Earlier this year I started writing my own CMS system, but its taken a back seat to WordPress. Adding plugins and writing custom skins for it has been super-easy to master, and the interface is nice and light. Just wait- soon Colorado will be swarming with elegant sites of all shapes and sizes all running on WordPress.

I’ll be the Colorado WordPress master! Interested in learning more about WordPress or data-driven websites? Check out my portfolio or contact me.
