My role: Custom WordPress theme design & development; logo design. I did this project through my freelance web design service, Pixel Plane Media.
Knollwood Construction Co. is a full-service home remodeling contractor serving Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

- A clean, inviting design and color scheme.
- WordPress as a content management system. Plugins were utilized to provide front-end editing, a contact form, enhanced SEO optimization and a front-page slideshow of featured projects.
- Usage of the WordPress 3.0 custom post type feature to create a Project Gallery. New projects can be added to the gallery and organized into archivable categories.
- I built a simple options panel and a custom widget to allow for easy maintenance of various parts of the theme.
