Tropical Birding (Sept, 2010)

Tropical Birding is a worldwide birding and photography tour company based in Quito, Ecuador.

Our mission was simple: craft a sexy, eye-catching site (see home page image at right) that gets visitors where they are going fast, then add video, stunning photos, and social media. We customized the  framework and functionality around the client’s top-notch content, so the pages are filled with sharp photography, videos, and tour descriptions as well as awesome tables, maps, forms, and graphics. The result is a sophisticated, Web 2.0-friendly WordPress implementation that stretches the limits of what WP can do as a content management system. This was a fantastic collaboration between my web team (Katherine Koch, lead designer, and Bill Klingensmith, Rob Mauer, and Sean Koch) and the owners of Tropical Birding (a birding tour company based in Quito, Ecuador).

This site prompted Chris Pearson, creator of the Thesis theme, to say, “This is one of the most extensive and awesome modifications of Thesis I’ve ever seen!”
