Wall-to-Wall Studios created the name, identity & branding and designed & developed the website for www.LaunchPGH.com, an interactive environment designed to connect entrepreneurs with opportunities and serve as a “launchpad” for local and new businesses. The site, commissioned by the URA (Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh), is a "one-stop shop" for entrepreneurs, investors, developers and job seekers with links to the best business and networking resources that can help them get their business off the ground, events for entrepreneurs and information about venture capitalists who might be interested in investing in their company.
The LaunchPGH website was developed using the WordPress custom content management system, and integrated the use of Responsive Design to optimize the user experience for desktop/laptop, mobile devices and iPad/tablet. The Responsive Design website approach responds to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation by using a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website automatically switches to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities.
