NuestraMente.org

Posted by on December 3, 2011 • Filed Under Programming, Web Development

NuestraMente.org is one of my latest projects. The website is for a mental health non-profit foundation based in Puerto Rico, the foundation aims to help people with mental conditions, their relatives and people who want to know more about mental health. The foundation also made a short film about OCD, based on a true story. I was part of the production team of the short as well, and it was a great experience. Our resources were very limited, we used our own money and a few donations so we could have food on our filming breaks. The cast and production team members did the work as pro bono. I’m so proud of the outcome and I can’t wait to be a part of all the future short films the foundation will make.

This website was a blast to work on, I used HTML5 for the markup and a lot of CSS3 elements. I took advantage of all the cool stuff one can do using the functions file with WordPress and made a few php functions for general stuff that eventually made my life easier when designing and coding the theme. This was my first time using a jQuery slider and I think it gives a special touch to the site. The site is in Spanish, it took some getting used to when I was publishing the content because I’m so used to writing everything in English because my blogs have always been in English. Ironic, since my first language is Spanish.

I’m very proud of the website and I’m really happy that the feedback has been great. If you can, please visit the site and like the FB Page, it would be greatly appreciated. If you have any comments, questions or suggestions about the design or coding, you can also leave a comment here!

    That is an incredibly clean and professional looking site. You did a great job... I really enjoy designing the layout of my sites/pages too... never did anything quite that elaborate though :-)
