Development notes: 

The Vinylguard site was a challenging project to work on. Designed once again by Monsterfarm, the site included several very complex page layouts. I built the site in Drupal, including a fully custom theme and implementation of content types, blocks, views, and other interface elements.

The Windows page (see sample, right) was a great test of my Drupal theming skills. First there is an animated carousel navigation block. Then, a section with information about the type of window, followed by a listing of products in that category. The product listings contain the full node content, arranged using tabbed navigation. For an additional challenge, the tabs don't all behave the same way — "features" and "learn more" act as tabs, while "options" opens a lightbox overlay and "performance ratings" opens a new page. This required some intricate custom JavaScript and complex manipulation of Drupal's templating system.
