Cascade Responsive Design Site Launch!

Est. Reading Time: 2 minutes

This afternoon, we launched a fully responsive Cascade server site at – Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District! This site was already in Cascade and the original graphical design was by another firm, but Beacon was entirely responsible for the new responsive design and the implementation into Cascade.

Big thanks to all those involved:

Jennifer did a lovely job of coming up with a responsive design that wasn’t too big a departure from their existing site, but still functional in a mobile capacity.

Tiffany did virtually all of the development and Cascade implementation herself, including her first solo site launch today! The client was able to work and publish in Cascade for the entire duration of the project while Tiffany developed and was only frozen out of Cascade for two days while the final implementation was completed, and that the implementation was completed a full day ahead of schedule!

Justin provided analysis assistance and a bit of as needed development.

A responsive design meets the following criteria:
