The NYU School of Social Work was my first completely custom theme, written from scratch, in WordPress. I took our dear friend Kubrick (the theme!), stripped him down, and painted him a wicked shade of purple. This project taught me how WordPress works on the backend, as well as familarize me with jquery form plugins (submit an alumni story, contact form). We also found a great plugin to manage the more than 30 smaller events that were held leading up to the grand party of them all — the big 50th Anniversary Celebration.
