Sportsman's Market

Came on board as a graphic designer creating HTML emails and banners. After about a year I had the opportunity to write more code and transition to a developer role. In addition to improving the website, maintained the database and worked with the Bronto API to manage email signups through our site. In 2014, I helped migrate our site to a new platform. Worked with the design team to build new themes for our catalog sites. Since then I’ve taken responsibility for most of the front end aspects of development: stylesheets and templates for dynamic pages, forms, and automated emails.

Their goals were to transition to a one-page, responsive design with better organized content and updated visuals.
