RDU had an extremely high-traffic site that was over five years old. Their mobile solution was a separate site, requiring duplicated content for passenger-facing, critical information. They needed a responsive site with a clean, modern look that could be easily updated, especially with important alerts. They wanted to keep their existing branding.

I designed and developed a responsive site for RDU, and built it as a custom WordPress theme. One of the challenges of this site was the amount of content and the dual purpose of the site: providing easy-to-find information to passengers, and serving an archival function for historians and public records. I leveraged custom post types and taxonomies a great deal to handle these needs. I utilized Skeleton as a responsive framework, and Underscores to speed development time. I also handled new graphics for the site. As I was the only developer on the project, I was serving as project manager, as well, advising and consulting with RDU as to best practices. I also worked with the client to optimize their server environment for their specific needs and traffic volume.
