  • Kentico 8 CMS installation and configuration
  • Creative design including two prototype designs and design iterations
  • Complete build out of website in Kentico 8
  • Creation of unique & responsive design elements within the bootstrap responsive framework
  • Functional and compliance testing and documentation of all testing

The project engaged several members of the High Monkey team and included a variety of different tasks. The total project duration was 3 months from project start to the re-launch of MNSCSC.ORG
