This Boulder web design project for the Colorado Cross Classic event website was created to for the annual Cyclocross race, which takes place in Boulder, Colorado, and attracts professional riders from all over the state and beyond. This years event was supported by sponsors like Webroot, 1st Bank, Oskar Blues, VeloNews, and many other local Boulder area businesses.
The primary goal of the Colorado Cross Classic website / Boulder web design project was to inform riders about the 2010 event, including course maps and event info, online registration, event news and updates, as well as prominent placement of sponsor and partner logos for this Boulder event. To help convey the location and setting of this event, we chose to use a large image of the iconic Boulder Flatirons as the site background, and then blurred the image to create a sense of distance and depth on the page. The additional scrolling image banner on the website home page further highlights the nature of this Cyclocross event, and allows for graphic banner drivers to allow visitors to easily register for the Boulder event.
This Boulder web design project leveraged the popular WordPress platform, which allowed us to hand off the site and its content to CCC event staff for ongoing updates, news posts, and addition of sponsors and other event info as race day approached. The powerful WordPress admin interface allowed for fast and easy site updates by multiple website editors, and connections to social sites, like Facebook & Twitter, were also very easy for CCC site editors to manage and update. This project was completed on an accelerate timeline.
