Wordpress Development for Nonprofits

Another of our favorite projects from 2012 was a revamp of Inveneo's online presence. Inveneo is a nonprofit that works to improve the lives of people in developing countries through technology.


Inveneo came to us with a clear direction for functionality and a great set of mockups from an outside design agency. While we often prefer to use our in-house design talent, we certainly don't mind when the source material is this good! 

We translated those graphic design files into a working website powered by Wordpress. As a CMS, Wordpress has a solid, battle-tested core for publishing static pages and posts for blogs and press releases. We extensively tweaked Wordpress with plugins and function enhancements to create easy to manage sidebar widgets and display related content areas. Wordpress was further extended with custom post types for the slideshow and the interactive mapping element. The map allows Inveneo to effectively showcase their global presence by allowing the site visitor to filter their work by country and/or sector.
