Special focus microsite for Lawyers Weekly
Similar to the news surrounding the Bulger trial, Lawyers Weekly wanted to have a dedicated area set up for the legal news emerging from the Boston Marathon Bombing.
Fortunately, the company had recently pushed through usage of a new WordPress theme called Jarida. Unlike the theme it replaced, Jarida framework allowed for alot of creative flexibility such as editing of CSS, support for responsive layout, and defining of custom widget areas. Previously all of these areas weren’t possible to change without coordinating with the IT department, so projects such as these would often get backed up due to their busy schedule.
So I designed and developed this microsite to take full advantage of all such features. After the launch, web editors from other locations within the company started to contact me, asking how I was able to do so.
