The goal of this project was to focus content around a tighter area and to make the site productive.
To achieve this, the blog was removed and all content was made accessible from the home page. The WordPress theme was upgraded to the Pro theme. Images were all built using the same pattern, including font choices.
This project cleaned up the website and made it easier to use.
