One of Albuquerque’s largest public affairs firms asked me to develop their brand new website.
Working alongside their talented creative team, I developed their website into a custom theme for WordPress over the course of two weeks.
A Tenacious Ally
Influencing Positive Outcomes
Albuquerque’s largest entrepreneurial public affairs firm specializies in corporate communications, public relations, grassroots and opinion leader mobilization, digital & creative services and bilingual/multicultural programs. A partnership of like-minded innovators – born out of our combined experiences in the corporate, consulting and political worlds – Agenda has strong a record of influencing positive outcomes for our clients.
The new design got rid of the long pages you typically see that explain each service the company provides in length. They get straight to the point by displaying each service on the Home page with call to actions to animate a description of each.
Agenda’s impressive client list is shown with a logo farm. The use of
flex-box handles the alignment and flow of how the images are laid out.
I also used
flex-box to layout the locations in the footer and on the Contact page. It was a tricky setup because I have to allow the client to add as many locations as they want within reason while keeping the site responsive and indestructible.
It’s a perfect setup for how I build WordPress themes for my clients.
Experience Sets Us Apart
Ready To Work
Agenda’s portfolio is impressive with clients ranging from Chevron and AT&T to local businesses around New Mexico. They kept their portfolio pages pretty simple, with a few graphics along side a description of the services provided for each client and how they helped them achieve their goals.
Like most of the back-end, the Leadership pages were built using Advanced Custom Fields. With this functionality, I’m able to allow the client to fill in as little or as much custom content as possible without it messing up the layout of the page. There is a fallback for everything so it degrades nicely, both in content and in style.
Relentless Speed Testing
I’m obsessed with speed performance and optimizations. I can’t help myself.
When a client signs up for extra speed enhancements, I use all of the tools necessary to get the load time and page size down as much as I can. The scores from Google PageSpeed and YSlow are optimized as much as possible for a WordPress. There are some restraints within WP that make it pretty much impossible to get a higher score than this on 95% of installations because of outside scripts and the functionality requirements of each website.
There is only so far you can go… and I go there.
