Long Overdue

The Chinese Information and Services Center (CISC) is a non-profit based out of the International District in Seattle, WA. CISC has long been a pillar of the local community, but didn’t have the resources to update their website for over 10 years. After an old friend reached out, I joined the IT Committee and worked with a designer who had finished a theme for CISC.

The volunteers and employees at CISC needed a complicated but easy to update website, so WordPress was chosen for the backend. I built the theme with FoundationPress, chosen for it’s strong layout system and high maintainability.

From old:

To new:

The site is currently maintained and populated by CISC staff and volunteers, and further improvements are being added frequently.

The CISC Wordpress Theme (CISCSeattlePress) is on github, forked with love from FoundationPress.
