Styling, feature integration, revise Divi behaviors
IronGlove provided development services as a subcontractor to modify and improve default Divi behaviors, integrate new features, and provide advanced styling on several sections. I worked with Lewis Creative's staff to demonstrate and implement custom CSS and Sass for all headers for image positioning and font rendering. Additionally, there were several content blocks with overlays and text that required more advanced styling and jQuery and Sass were used to hook into these Divi sections and modify them based on client needs. Another section that was modified was the portfolio content block at the bottom of the home page, where rollover labels were required to be styled with appropriate size and color, as well as implementing Flexbox to change the position of the content. After this, we also created a new Google Account and assisted the client in setting up billing and API controls for Google Maps and then integrated Google Maps within Divi. Lastly, we integrated a social media feed on the homepage and styled it per the client requirements to blend with the overall look and feel of the entire site.
DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME
As a professional developer that focuses on providing services to other agencies, don't ask me to cut corners or put a band-aid on it. There's a right way and a wrong way to reprioritize work and speed up production time that doesn't involve creating problems for clients. If you want my help, we're going to do this ethically, correctly, and to standards.
REALISTIC PROJECT PLANNING
When I work with your agency, expect me to be a good listener, to be confident in what I do, and to never sugarcoat things for you. If something needs to be said for the sake of your reputation and the client's project, then expect to hear it from me first. We'll work together to come up with a realistic, professional plan for your clients that won't cause them pain.
RIGHT TOOL FOR THE RIGHT JOB
I don't believe in slamming out cheap templates, using stock settings, or working fast and cheap. It's not only your harming your business image as an agency, but it will destroy my reputation as a professional developer. While I'm more than happy to help you, don't ask me to do things that should be found on cheap offshore contractor sites.
My goal is to work in unison with your agency as a contracted senior member of your team to augment the skills and expertise you don't have in-house. We'll need to work closely together and learn to trust one another. So expect a tight working relationship with professional pushback, and you'll need to be ready to grow from day one to be successful.
