project:
For the launch of their product, The Litl Webbook, Litl needed a site built from the ground up using html/css/jquery. This site utilizes a combination of the .CMS content management system and Django to run the litl.com, store.litl.com and our.litl.com domains. The current iteration of this site was designed, implemented and launched during a 3-week scramble. Previous designs and templates were scrapped in favor of a trimmer darker design.
