The Nerdery - Overnight Website Challenge

Chicago 2012, November 17-18

Drop Shadows Not Bombs

Hello. We are Drop Shadows Not Bombs. We're a team of engineers, designers, user experience architects, quality assurance experts, interactive athletes, copywriters, and project managers. Our weapon of choice is WordPress, and we're all about maintainable code, accessibility and usability, and general prettiness. We're excited to give a needy non-profit a beautiful site that solves organizational problems, is easy to update, and makes them (and us) proud. Collectively, our team members have launched 916 — no, make that 917 — interactive projects and apps. Drop Shadows Not Bombs has made it to the Web Challenge finals more than once. Needless to say, we're ready to bring it.
