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.
