Stori.es is a Consumers Union website to promote and market a digital storytelling tool. The tool is a custom web application designed and built by Consumers Union to maintain stories collected since 2003. CU is now inviting other non-profits to use the tool and provide feedback. Another member of my team created the application. I developed the website in June 2012 using WordPress. I created the logo and many of the vector illustrations. The site is a fully-functioning content-management system, utilizing a custom theme.
Unlike other CU campaign sites, the stori.es website uses a WordPress plugin called RoyalSlider on the homepage. This slider is splashier than others. It allows me to use large visually-appealing graphics, animate text and scrolling effects. It helps to brand the product and explains the story of stori.es.Client: Consumers Union
