Online content is central to Blueprint JD’s mission and that was overwhelming to folks whose closest brush with developers is watching Apple unveil its latest product.  Thankfully, we didn’t have to go it alone.  WordPress, the software platform for our website, is incredible and we’ve been amazed by what it (and the developers who leverage it) can do.  We are grateful to their genius and want to give credit where credit is due.  We’re also current and budding attorneys who don’t want to infringe on anyone’s intellectual property.  So, below is a sneak peek into the hours of development and design (theirs) as well as research and tears (ours) that went into the Blueprint JD website.

Design and Tools

As we mentioned above, we use WordPress to power Blueprint JD. But it doesn’t end there. Our design stems from a Elegant Theme’s Trim template. User-friendly WuFoo powers virtually all of our forms and Mailchimp comes to the rescue for our mailing list. Last, Issuu allows us to bring you the latest in diversity research.
