Responsive WordPress Template

Our client manages a WordPress website for a beautiful inn. The WordPress theme was designed specifically for the in, and was working well for them – but it was not responsive.

David reworked the existing WordPress theme to use the Bootstrap responsive framework. Now the site looks great on any device.

Asset Management System

Our client produces and installs digital and other stationary devices across North America. We built a system that allows the client to monitor their devices and ensure that everything is going smoothly both leading up to, and after installation.

The software we developed checks the status of digital devices using various APIs supplied by device manufacturers, and alerts the client if there is an issue. It includes a task list that lets managers add to-do items to any device. Devices and issues are grouped by location, with maps to help visualize where problems are occurring. The system can be used both internally by our client as well as by their clients so that they can see and manage the status of their own devices.

For this project we used our favourite frameworks: CodeIgniter to structure and simplify back-end, Knockout.js for robust lightning-fast front-end, and jQueryUI for attractive and intuitive widgets. Thanks folks!

 

Renewabled

Renewabled.com offers its users a way of finding renewable energy suppliers near them. The site has a search tool that returns a list of distributors within a radius of the user’s selected location.

The owner of Renewabled approached DOMIC needing help to improve the accuracy of these results. David added an additional buffer to the results to include the city bounds, as well as suggesting and implementing various other changes to improve code efficiency.

Figure Skating Boutique

This site’s administrator contacted David to revamp the site to be easier to navigate, and to be responsive.

The site uses Zen-cart as a back end shopping cart. David designed a responsive template that could be integrated into Zen-cart. The template uses a combination of Zurb Foundation’s framework and custom media queries to control the appearance of responsive elements.

The 100-Mile Child

The features Olga implemented include a custom-built shopping cart with Moneris checkout, a gift registry/wish list, product ratings, comments, user accounts for returning customers, and a back-end administrative interface.

David designed a series of new virtue icons to support these new features, as well as making seasonal changes to the design of the site, and miscellaneous other layout components.

Transit Kiosk

David interfaced Google Maps API into this transit station kiosk. The user can choose between various modes of transportation including bus, car, bike, and walking. The directions are broken up into logical steps, and displayed in a customized layout. The system will suggest destinations based on what the user started typing. Once a route has been selected, the user can choose to have directions e-mailed or texted to them.
