The New School for Writing contacted us because they had a faculty and alumni website/blog/literary journal that just wasn’t living up to all of the amazing accomplishments of everyone they were reporting on. Their old site was already in WordPress with quite a number of entries. Park Place Web Design consulted with their project manager to discuss exactly what their needs were from both a design and function standpoint, and based on those consultations, hand-picked a few top choices from the thousands of available WordPress Themes. After presenting our picks to The New School, we then uploaded their two favorites onto our testing server and imported their current content to make sure it all gelled before doing the real thing.
Ultimately, it was decided that Old Car theme, designed by ThemeVan was the one to use. There were, however, several things that needed customizing to make it a perfect fit. In addition to making some color, logo and spacing changes. Park Place Web Design also modified the Portfolio so it could accommodate all those awesome book jackets on the “Faculty and Graduate Bookshelf.”
