Making Cents International


Web Design and Development, WordPress, HTML, CSS

Seeking a more effective tool for promoting their mission of creating change through social entrepreneurship, Making Cents International (MCI) contracted Rings Leighton to help redevelop their website. Initial meetings aided us in understanding MCI’s mission, goals, and audiences, as well as specific project objectives, like eliminating pain points in the current website, and determining what new features should be part of the new website.

Building the new site on a WordPress platform and using the Elementor page builder we were able to develop a site that not only can be customized with a large library of plug-ins, but can also be easily updated with a drag-and-drop interface. Specific features we developed for this site include:

  • Multiple custom categories that allow content to be tagged and displayed in a variety of ways including location, date, target audience, sponsor, and specific goals;
  • Several custom post-types for projects, sponsors, news articles, and blog posts; and
  • A custom-built map that allows users to view MCI’s projects by world region.
