Samples of our work

Mega Menus

We ensured that the site's navigation was helpful and easy to navigate for Skills Canada's primary users.

Skills Canada Career Explorer Map

The Skills Canada Career explorer is an interactive map meant to centralize information about educational institutions across the country. The primary goal is to help encourage and support the choice of a skilled career in trades and technologies to youth and their communities. The map allows users to filter educational institutions across the country by desired salary, skill area, or sector to find a suitable option to kick start their career.

Custom Post Types 

Wordpress comes with standard post types such as blog post and pages. Instead of including information about competition events, programs, and other sections of the site as pages, we create custom post types. These post types are structured in a way that ensures a seamless front-end experience, centralizes the content on the back-end and simplifies the uploading work.
