Philadelphia Futures/Ellis Trust

View Site

Philadelphia Futures approached my previous employer looking to re-brand their web presence (two websites, including the Ellis Trust project) into something modern and accessible to parents and students seeking affordable educational resources in the Philadelphia area. I was tasked as the sole developer on this project with coding a new website fitted with a content overhaul that reflected it’s new cohesion through many unique page structures. Developed through PHP mainly (HTML/CSS/JavaScript included), this new site would be an easily-navigated hub of program information, with a modified WordPress back-end experience focused on ease-of-use, tailored specifically for the client’s content manager. After working closely with our design team and copywriters on the conceptualization and development phases of this project, I wrote a detailed user-guide and trained the client on it’s use post-launch. Work on this site continued periodically in the form of maintenance and upkeep for a period of time.

Months after the Philly Futures main-site launch, I contributed to the development of it’s sister site, Ellis Trust.
