Worked with my friend Devin again to design a website for a clean energy company in Vermont. Put to use some of the more advanced CSS methods I’d learned at An Event Apart to design a site that is beautiful and interactive in advanced browsers like Chrome and Safari but still degrades gracefully in less advanced browsers like Internet Explorer.
Things I learned: I learned more about CSS transitions, their applications, and how to make them gracefully degrade. Learned new tricks for applying backgrounds in interesting ways. Expanded my work with shortcodes as well – learning how to use them more intelligently in a design in order to add additional functionality for the client to use later.
I felt I really stretched my boundaries on implementing this design – mainly from a CSS standpoint. I was very happy I was able to implement most of the beauty and slickness Devin imagined in this design.
