The Nerdery - Overnight Website Challenge

Twin Cities 2014, April 12-13

Drop Shadows Not Bombs

Hello. We are Drop Shadows Not Bombs. We're a team of engineers, designers, user experience architects, quality assurance experts, interactive athletes, copywriters, and project managers. Our weapon of choice is WordPress, and we're all about maintainable code, accessibility and usability, and general prettiness. We're excited to give a needy non-profit a beautiful site that solves organizational problems, is easy to update, and makes them (and us) proud. Collectively, our team members have launched 1136 — no, make that 1137 — interactive projects and apps. As former Web Challenge finalists with five Challenges under our belts, we're ready to bring it.

Support Commitment

Drop Shadows Not Bombs has made the following pledge of continued support to any nonprofit they may be paired with:

We'll provide 30 hours to do any final touch-ups, server configuration and deployment, and any CMS training we couldn't fit into the 24-hour timeline. And of course, we'll make sure the non-profit has all of the code, credentials and instructions they need to feel empowered with their new site.
