Did someone say double deca? This large scale site was a redesign of an existing Freedom site & took about a year and a half of planning, design & development to ensure it's smooth transition from old to new. The site contains: a plethora of useful custom modules, lots of local news, photos, homepage slideshow & is now fully responsive.

We pushed the boundaries of Photo Album & Events Module and took it to new places that I haven't seen before. We also added a lot of infinite scrolling / AJAX loading features for many of the pagination sections of the site.

Even though you won't be able to access the back office, I'm proud to say this was built with ONE, yes count them, ONE page layout. Thanks to Freedom's great new(er) settings that were introduced over the last year or so we condensed the old site's design from 40+ page layouts down to one for the new design.

Anyway, check out the new site, post any feedback, critique, questions or anecdotes you have below.

Andy, the site looks amazing! It looks super optimized, and when I click around, everything is super snappy.

Good job on accomplishing the 1 page layout. All of that extra effort will pay off in the end for future updates.
