Steelcase.com is the largest website that I have built yet. It is built on Sharepoint which means that a lot of work went in to making it look the way it does. Any of you who don’t know what Sharepoint is, know that it is relatively frustrating to style. I used jQuery 1.4.2 and ended up writing a slider plugin to do the slide effect that you see on the homepage and on the product pages. I used a modified simple accordion plugin and a modified lightbox plugin. All in all, it was a challenge.
The History / Process
Steelcase tasked Conduit Studios with designing their new look and feel. Conduit hired me as a freelance developer, last summer, to help build the site and through the process decided I was good enough for their team. I now work full-time with Tim Carpenter and John O’Niell at Conduit Studios in Grand Rapids, MI. These guys are genius’ and it is a pleasure to work with them. We currently do work for a large array of clients including Hush Puppies and other Wolverine World Wide companies, a number of Steelcase brands including Coalesse and Nurture, apparel retail company A.K.Rikk’s, and many more.
