I’m excited to announce the launch of 1st Door Software’s new website, it can be found at 1stDoor.com. This was one of the funnest sites I’ve had the pleasure of building, much of the pleasure came from my exploration and convergence of HTML5, CSS3 & jQuery. All of these tools working together made for an easy development process and some clean interactivity. Unfortunately due to some confidentiality issues we weren’t able to launch the site with all of the applications that 1st Door Software had developed, but more will be added soon.

1st Door Software - Homepage - HTML5

1st Door Software - XF Diary - jQuery & CSS3

For the last few years I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with MBS Mountainboards on a few board designs. During that time there had been numerous discussion about a website redesigns as it had been over 5 years since the their site had received a face lift. As we know technology change pretty fast these days and just to give you an idea where their site was in the technology timeline it was built when tables were a web standard.

After getting a base understanding of their existing platforms we decided MBS needed a platform that could be updated with ease, wouldn’t cost anything to upgrade, had CMS capabilities and lots of rich media. Along with the need for a CMS and rich media features we also needed a separate e-commerce site to give MBS the ability to sell all of it’s products seamlessly to consumers and retailers. Knowing we had a very lofty job in front of us we tackled this with two open source technologies, WordPress & Magento.

Here are a few screen shots of the new MBS Mountainboards site and a few of the custom features.

MBS Mountainboards - Homepage

MBS Mountainboards homepage includes featured article rotator, dynamic featured product and featured videos populating.

MBS Mountainboard - Team Profiles

MBS Mountainboard team profile is a major improvement from it's previous look now including photos and videos for every pro rider.

MBS Mountainboards - Find A Dealer

MBS Mountainboards Find A Dealer allows users to find a local retailer that carry MBS products. The Become A Dealer form creates a profile for dealers thier location is dynamically populated into the Find A Dealer map upon administators approval.
