Used Fusion subtheme for the visual with photoshop comps from Gijo Designs. Utilized CSS3 to create the rounded corners and shadow effects without the use of images.
Added the newsletter and helpful links on the sidebar, share widgets on header, laying out the main sponsors page in custom XHTML and CSS web standards. Configured the photo gallery and video capabilities so that the content managers can easily add photos and videos by either upload or from youtube / vimeo. Also set up the slideshow on the homepage.
