We love working with Rackspace for their unique combination of racker savvy and scrappy start-up style. When we had the opportunity to work on the Rackspace Startups website redesign together, we knew we’d crush it.
The Rackspace Startups program provides startups with special access and pricing on tech tools, development platforms, cloud hosting, and professional development resources.
We redesigned a fully responsive website with a simple user experience that puts all of Rackspace Startups’ tools and resources at the fingertips of eager entrepreneurs everywhere.
We followed an in-browser production process from wireframes to design and development, testing and refining the design at every step along the way. The product is an elegant, single-page website that’s fully scalable by adding new WordPress pages and blog content.
A few highlights:
A simplified sign-up and application process makes it easier for startups and incubators to find information and join the Rackspace Startups program.
YouTube API video integration dynamically pulls YouTube videos into the site, making new content available right from Rackspace Startups.
Easy content management. The Rackspace team includes a cadre of development rockstar rackers, we wanted to make content management so simple that anyone at the company could easily update the website anytime. We build the WordPress management dashboards to offer the easiest solutions for managing website content from custom pages to creating new forms.
We were stoked to work with Rackspace Startups on such a cool project and excited to see the future of the program.
