Defining the Conversation

Blog Building and Development for National Access Network

For the National Access Network, our designer worked with the client to develop concept art and a banner for a two-column blog. Our development team then upgraded the existing WordPress install on NAN’s site and developed a theme to match the concept art.

We installed expand and contract sidebar menus using jquery and modified the wp-mail and sociable plugins to give NAN’s readers the ability to share content using a variety of services.

Of the effort, our client wrote:

I hired Parnassus to design a blog on education policy developments for a high-profile policy think tank based at Columbia University. The blog had lived conceptually in our minds for quite some time. Naturally, we had high hopes for its success. After one brief meeting, Parnassus understood our needs to a tee; developed a detailed timeline moving forward; connected us with an excellent graphic designer; and within weeks our new blog was up and running without a hitch, to our delight.

I have worked with several WordPress designers in the past. The professionalism at Parnassus can’t be beat. They are efficient. They meet deadlines. Their counsel on how best to compete in the crowded blogosphere is unparalleled. They are available at a moment’s notice for “crisis” communications. Their technical wizardry is enviable. In sum, Parnassus knows the ins and outs of WordPress and are experts at optimizing the technology to build a bigger web and blog presence. Our blog is growing in readership each day as a result of the great work of Parnassus.
