The Empire State Building

Role: ,

The Empire State Building needs no introduction – it is a building that is recognized around the world as a symbol for the city of New York.

I helped manage a complete ground-up rebuild of their site that both gave them a responsive design, but also moved the onto a modern, easier to update content management system (Drupal).

My role was to oversee the development of the site, manage stakeholders, and generally make sure things went as planned. I personally contributed a lot of site building to the site – constructing content types, views, etc.

One of the more interesting phases of the project was when we were asked to implement translated content – in 9 languages. Being that they get visitors from all over the world, though, it is crucial that international visitors receive a top-notch experience as well.
