The New Two Six Code
Today I am proud to launch the new Two Six Code site. I’ve been building ExpressionEngine sites with designers and their clients for nearly four years now. It’s what I do and I love it. One of the goals of the new site is to communicate that more clearly.
I won't wax poetic about ExpressionEngine (as I often do when talking to clients), but I will say this: it’s a great content management system and a big part of why Two Six Code is successful and has so many happy clients. EE also has a very friendly community of which I am proud to be a part.
The site design is by Cococello. What can I say about Deb? She’s a joy to work with and very talented. I am elated with the new design and had a blast putting this site together. Thank you, Deb. ♥
New copy on the site was provided by Dawn Klingensmith. I thought copy was going to be one of the toughest parts and I knew I wanted assistance from a pro. Working with Dawn made the process really fun.
The site is built using a responsive approach (go ahead and resize your browser window if you are curious). I didn't go with a framework, but opted to create my own percentage-based layout and set the breakpoints where it made sense. In the spirit of future-proofing the site a bit I added retina (2x) images. Having tested this on the new iPad, I can say the sharpness is worth the extra time!
Another recently adopted technique that's been keeping everything super-clean and DRY in my ExpressionEngine templates is Stash and a template partials approach. I've built a few sites this way now and greatly prefer it. I'm not using very many other add-ons for this site, but it was fun to set up the ExpressionEngine control panel for myself for a change. For convenience I'm using EE's MetaWeblog API and MarsEdit to publish to the Notes section of the site.
