Designed and launched a responsive WordPress site for Yes magazine which includes a shop powered by WooCommerce and payments handled by Stripe and PayPal. Custom functions were added to handle digital downloads and magazine subscriptions. I am also responsible for creating site content and managing the blog.
Designed six unique templates for the iOS app version of Yes magazine made for the TypeEngine publishing platform. A template was made for each section of the magazine and was designed to mimic, as much as possible, the styles of the print version.
