Every year, Global Encounters sends teams of young people on short-term mission trips all over the world. However, their aging website was no longer able to keep up with the demands of their growing outreach.
Mindy Holt had created a trendy design in Photoshop for their new website and they came to us for the site coding, programming, configuration, and migration.

Here are a few of the techy solutions that we used on this project to effectively and efficiently meet the client’s requirements:

  • Responsive Layout. We utilized the Canvas template by WooThemes to jumpstart the project and give us a responsive framework around which to code the site.
  • ECommerce. The popular WooCommerce plugin allowed us to implement a full-featured eCommerce solution in WordPress.
  • Trip Finder. We harnessed the power of Toolset to quickly build our own custom WordPress content types.
  • Complex Online Forms. Gravity Forms is definitely one of the best form-building packages for WordPress and allowed them to be able to configure their own web forms.
  • Media. For a rich media experience, such as photo galleries and video channels, we plugged in Vipers Video Quicktags, Vimeography, and NextGen Gallery
  • Email Hosting. We migrated them over to a complete Google Apps installation for their ministry networking needs.

We greatly enjoyed working with the Global Encounters team and wish them the best in their future adventures!
