About the services we provided:

Base Design

The previous website was created many years ago before technologies like responsive design, CMS integration, HTML5 and more advanced java scripting was adapted or even possible. Because of this, their site had an outdated design, without being mobile friendly or search engine friendly.

We took the base content on the current site, and developed a design around the structure of the data as well as the regulations set by the YMCA for brand compliance. We built it with a BootStrap base, using several plugins, some pre-packaged and some custom made.

There are currently 4 locations within the YMCA of Catawba Valley, so to help with separation within the same site, we created a “portal” via sections of the site for each location, that serves as a repository of content independent of the other locations.

CMS Management

One of the requirements of the YMCA of Catawba Valley was to have multilevel access to a back end system with the ability to edit content based on location and user level. They also needed higher end functions such as social media management and integration of a top level API. This lead us to create a custom back end based from the principals of WordPress. To get more information of the back end created and to see a demo, contact us!
