Two years ago, we began working with the inspiring people at Split This Rock on their website redesign. The new site launched in the spring of 2014, boasting a more visually engaging design, as well as a mobile-responsive layout and a more staff-friendly CMS.
After the launch, our work (together with the fantastic Rob Howard) continued behind the scenes on another aspect of the site: the poetry database. We designed it to be beautiful, useful, and easy for staff to maintain in-house. Now, after a year of tireless effort by Split This Rock—organizing, tagging, and populating the database—they were ready to launch “The Quarry” on June 25th. And they couldn’t have chosen a more appropriate way to celebrate: a joyful, inspiring, poetry-filled party at Busboys and Poets.
