Graphic Design: Tami Vileta
CSS/XHTML Web Development: Scott Marlow

Situation: A nested table-based website that could no longer be efficiently maintained and updated by nonprofit Skills, Inc. The site navigation was not functional across browsers, like Firefox, so parts of the website were invisible to some visitors.

Solution: Tami Vileta, principal of Practice Perfecters, designed the new graphical look & feel – a softer tone with rounded corners and a casual typeface. I was brought in for the web development.

I developed a 100% CSS-based website, with minimal javascript (kudos to Ryan Salva of Capitol Media for his javascript coding) to power the navigation and a few other minor features. A style guide helps Skills, Inc. staff edit the HTML in-house. Flash elements will be added to the site over time.

A 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, Skills, Inc. provides vocational training to persons with disabilities by partnering with regional companies to provide a variety of manufacturing services – including assembly, fabrication, finishing, and machining, as well as fulfillment services.
