The deal sample, six ways from sunday
I have been fairly busy since the last time I posted, working on several projects simultaneously, so lets go over a few of them, shall we?
Six Ways From Sunday (the band)
These guys are all pretty good friends (and then Tim), so when Sarah commissioned me to build them a website, I jumped at the opportunity. She was kind enough to provide me with a pretty decent design that matches this band’s music fairly well, so I got to work.
This site is a relatively simple WordPress setup that allows them the ability to easily add shows to their schedule, update photo-galleries, and post their new stuff. And from what I can tell, they loved it.
It’s a (sample) deal!
Someone came up with the idea to allow our salespeople here at Groupon the ability to create sample deals to show off to their merchants, and it eventually reached my desk (or email inbox, whichever) to finish it up. It is a pretty neat little tool that will reflect changes on a mock-deal-page in real time as the user types. Even going as far as allowing the user the choice between uploading their own custom deal image, or selecting from a group of kinda-stock photos from our awesome image-designers. All the arrows in the image below are editable areas. Nice and simple to change.
