The Nerdery’s Overnight Website Challenge

I can’t say enough about my team at The Nerdery’s Overnight Website Challenge. We rocked it. We had a ball. And I didn’t even get into an intense argument about whether or not to include a breadcrumb system!

Our client, Project 515, was unbelievably great to work with, and I would say that our work over the course of that 24 hours between Saturday and Sunday rivals the best work I have ever done.

For Project 515, we created a custom SMS notification WordPress plugin, a brand new design + WordPress theme, and a beautiful promotional video featuring Project Runway‘s Christopher Straub.

The new website and functionality will be launched in the very near future. We are simply ironing out some little knots before going live. Stay tuned for more info!

    You neglect to mention that you guys were finalists! Don’t be so modest!

    Congratulations on the great work.

    @Erica: It was great seeing you at the event!

    @Erik: Thanks for the kind words. I suppose it is worth mentioning that we were finalists… :)
