WordPress Website for Strong Against Cancer
While working a contract job at Copacino+Fujikado (a small ad agency in Downtown Seattle) through Vitamin T (now Aquent Talent) I developed a WordPress site for Strong Against Cancer (now offiline), a pediatric cancer treatment fundraising initiative that is part of Seattle Children’s Hospital.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has supported this campaign and even mentioned it during a national ESPN SportsCenter TV interview.
I took Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign assets created by an in-house designer and built the website from scratch, including:
- Using MAMP, phpMyAdmin, Git, and GitHub to build the website locally, deploy to a staging server, and finally making it live.
- Adding custom post types with meta boxes on every page and a search button (upper-right of website) and custom search page to access the appropriate custom post types and pages.
- Implementing security features on user-input forms to avoid malicious content being inserted into the website. For example in the “Immunotherapy” section on the home page, I only allowed a user-inputted YouTube video
iframetag to go where the “The End to Childhood Cancer” YouTube video embed appears (see screenshot below).
