Established in 1982, our mission is the radical reduction of new infections in San Francisco because we refuse to accept HIV as inevitable.

The San Francsco AIDS Foundation came to me with a handful of Photoshop files from a designer and instructions to “make it work in any content publishing system”. No problem! We created a custom JS navigation system that had a single dependency, JQuery. The CSS was also custom which allowed us to escape the “everything looks like bootstrap” issue. These two decisions made for an amazingly lightweight and extensible end product. What would I do differently? While the home page is built to work across content contexts, a responsive design throughout was not in the cards for the project. The designer delivered desktop only context layouts. I would LOVE to go back and make the existing look and feel more responsive to mobile and alternative platforms like televisions.
