Crushing the Curve

For this project, frequent collaborator Stacy Kvernmo and I both worked with DevCollaborative.

Crushing the Curve is a San Francisco Bay Area campaign that helps young adults and their families stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The site was built from scratch in 6 weeks. Stacy worked to customize the Astra theme to reflect CtC’s brand, while I set up the backend templates and data.

The site’s content can be filtered by both topic and location. I set up custom code to connect city and county taxonomy, so that users can search by their city name, and find content that editors have entered flagged to their county.

With funding from CDC, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, and several California counties, we’ll be working to build out more content and better search usability for the site in Phase 2, launching later in 2020.
