Blog » Recent Work: WordPress, Sass, Rails

March 22nd, 2014

A busy past few weeks: we’ve launched some WordPress websites, designed and recorded a video training course on Sass, and updated a number of Ruby on Rails web applications.

We launched a WordPress website for our client Critical Link, designers of high-end embedded systems – including system on modules and scientific cameras for OEMs – for clients across the world in the industrial, manufacturing, communications, transportation, and defense markets. We designed the site with careful attention to the positioning of Critical Link’s brand, built the WordPress site to make easy the process of managing their impressive list of products, and are in the process of updating the visual branding of their Ruby-on-Rails-based wiki support site to match the new look.

Working for our partner Infinite Skills in Toronto, Canada, Brian Hoke recently designed and recorded a video-based training course on Sass, the Cascading Style Sheet preprocessor. The course leads students through installation and use of Sass, enabling – through variables, functions, and better code organization – easier, more efficient, more effective CSS development. The Sass course comes on the heels of our development of a training course on Ruby on Rails.

We recently updated the design for Merchants Commons, the website for a mixed-use real estate development in the heart of downtown Syracuse. Featuring 66 apartments and over 34,000 square feet of office space, Merchants Commons’ residential and commercial space have been 100% occupied since the property opened over a year ago. The WordPress site features full-screen photos of apartment units, amenities (including the stunning rooftop deck), and office space, along with a custom jQuery-based application for potential tenants.

Other recent work includes project management, jQuery development, PHP development, and lots (and lots) of WordPress work for our clients from the professional services, education, nonprofit, government, and online retail sectors.
