Allies with Families

I wrapped up a project yesterday that hasn’t quite gone live yet for the Allies with Families organization. They are a Utah based non-profit helping families of children with mental health needs. The splash page is still in place, but the new site should be live in the next couple of days. The site was designed by my friend Chris Maynes.

It was my first real project to use HTML5 and ExpressionEngine. HTML5 is fairly simple to adopt going forward as long as you use a shiv for IE provided by the HTML5 Doctor. ExpressionEngine felt like the right CMS for the current and future needs of the site. The biggest win there was enabling and using file based templates. Editing HTML in forms harkened back to over ten years ago when I had a website on Angelfire.
