I worked closely with Michael in designing and implementing The NEO Fund website (theneofund.org). From the initial planning meeting to the days following our actual go-live date, Michael’s experience and knowledge have been invaluable in making the process painless and seamless. Our process required only 2 face-to-face meetings: initial consultation and a training session towards the end of the project. He maintained open communication throughout with regard to budget so there were no surprises at the end, as I have had with other developers in the past. He worked closely with me to ensure keeping the project on-time. When necessary, he stepped in on multiple occasions to research areas outside his responsibilities (securing payment service merchants, for example), to give me options and flexibility with the final site. When I had questions, his explanations were thorough and easy to understand. I am looking forward to working with him again on my next web development project!

The Need:

Gillis Gilkerson needed a website that would be easy to maintain by staff and allow Gillis Gilkerson to showcase their community involvement, portfolio of works, case studies, news & press releases, and display testimonials from past clients. The identified needs included:

  • Website with fully featured Content Management System (CMS) to easily:

    • news & press release area
    • customized testimonial sidebar

…and all through a web based system that was easy to use and scalable to grow.

The Solution:

Spotlight Web Design worked as part of the a.s.a.p.r. creative suite for this project, and was brought in to provide the customized WordPress as a content management system (CMS) for this project. Other team members provide the following:

  • a.s.a.p.r. integrated marketing
    • Wrote the content for the website
    • Served as the project manager

As part of our on-going mission to provide the best possible user experience, this site was designed as responsive web design (RWD), using HTML5 and CSS3. This means that users will have the appropriate experience while using the site regardless of using the site on a PC, Mac, or a mobile device. Website layout changes based on device and is designed to maximize the end user experience.
