I’m super-excited to share the latest launch by RP3 Agency: The Washington Area Women’s Foundation website.
This website launch is the culmination of nearly a year of close collaboration with the client, extensively reimagining their outdated website and delivering a clean, modern and responsive new site.
Additionally, the new site is built on WordPress, leveraging the platform’s strengths as a full-featured content management system. My goal as the technical lead of the project was to deliver a site that not only was more pleasing and easy to use for visitors, but easier and more intuitive to manage for our clients.
In coming days and weeks I’ll be sharing more about the structure of the site: how we created a flexible content entry system yet maintained simplicity in the entry fields; our use of technologies such as Backbone.js to improve site performance, and how we architected the front end with Sass, Breakpoint and Susy grids.
My sincerest thanks to everyone on the team who made this site possible:
- Jared Arrington
- Suriporn Bridge
- Bryan Cox
- Mark Lovett
- Kat Piscatelli
- Allison Rinaldi
- Kurt Roberts
- Julie Smith
- Deanna Steers
- Lauren Turner
Way to go, team!

Are work anniversaries really a thing? LinkedIn seems to think so, if the volume of email announcing them is to be believed. But as I’m facing a work anniversary of my own, permit me a moment of self-reflection.

In my first of two rather self-indulgent blog posts this week — one here (look for it tomorrow) and one on RP3 Agency’s “Magnetisms” blog — I talk about how much I love the WordPress community.
Matt Marquis, chair of the Responsive Images Community Group, asked on Twitter:
Anyone know whether
picture/Picturefill support is officially in the works for WordPress? Could swear I saw something about that once.
There’s no official, native support for the
<picture> element (or its polyfill) in WordPress, and the Picturefill.js script is not included in the WordPress distribution (like jQuery is), but you can use both the
<picture> element along with Picturefill.js in your WordPress theme today, if you’re not afraid of a little custom theming. We’ll follow the instructions for using Picturefill.js by Scott Jehl for our actual
<picture> element markup.

Today RP3 Agency pulled the curtain back on RP3.io, our brand new, mobile first, responsive website. It’s been a crazy process of tight deadlines, designing on the fly, and taking up roles outside of our traditional comfort zones.
And we’re by no means done.
