Trekkers.org

November 1st, 2013

This was a really nice project for me: a cool non-profit group, that wanted an upgrade of its old website to WordPress. Trekkers is an org that takes high school kids on bus tours around the USA.
We created a site that had good balance between easy-admin, and rich news content. It has the potential for good community interaction, with lots of leaders and (hopefully) students posting content.

They wanted a big colorful theme, with plenty of ‘trekkers green’, a big slider. This theme uses only basic WordPress functions, except the calendar, which runs on the slick Event Calendar plugin.

As usual, I made some nice Scalable Vector Graphic (.svg) images so it would be sharp on a retina display. See the city-to-mountains graphic, on the top of the sidebar, on an iPad. You can’t get that with a .png.
