New MediaNode Site Launched

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

We have just launched our new site. The new site more clearly defines what we offer as a company, better displays our work, and makes it easier for you to get in contact with us.

There was an “under construction” placeholder here for quite a while as we planned out the details of the site. We’re very excited to finally get this site live.

This site is built around WordPress. We’re using it as a CMS to push content to certain areas of the site (like the featured work and news sections on the front page). We’re also using a few jQuery plug-ins and widgets to enhance the user experience. On the work section, we’re using the accordion widget from jQuery UI combined with the scrollTo plug-in to better display the content. After the accordion animation is finished, scrollTo is called to animate the head of the section to the top of the page.

Feel free to look around. You can even drop us a line if you’re so inclined. Let us know if there are any improvements you think we can make.

Mt. Lookout Swim Club Website

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

We recently launched Mt. Lookout Swim Club’s new website.

They needed a site that readily told patrons of club activities and announcements. We achieved this through an upcoming events list with a link to a full calendar on the front page. Also, the front page displays excerpts from the most recent news and announcement posts from the blog.

The site was also to attract potential new patrons. We designed the site to reflect the fun summertime nature of a swim club while maintaining the upscale tastes of its current patrons.
