LeagueApps Web Designer Community

Best Practices, LeagueApps In Action

Want to launch your new LeagueApps website or upgrade your existing site design and UI? Well, Look no further!

LeagueApps enables web designers to use a full suite of tools and access HTML and CSS code to customize a site design. This allows partners to create a more unique look and feel that captures their brand. So LeagueApps has compiled a growing list of professional designers that are familiar with the LeagueApps platform and have partnered with LeagueApps partners. You can view the LeagueApps Designer Roster here.

We previously put together a blog post called LeagueApps Loves Professional Designers. In the post we shared some sites and web design tools and guides.

Here are a few FAQ’s to help you understand and make the most out of The LeagueApps web designer community…

Q: Why has LeagueApps created this directory of web designers?

A: LeagueApps developed and is sharing this list to help connect our league partners with professional designers. We realize that many of our partners don’t have the time, energy, or budget to search for a web designer. Our goal is help make it easy to find the right designer through our network.

 

Q: What are the benefits of using a LeagueApps Recommended Designer vs. a Web Design Shop?

A: Our recommended list of designers all have one thing in common – they all have a proven track record with LeagueApps. Each designer has helped build at least one site design on LeagueApps. In this process, they have been able to become more familiar with the design tools and functionality. Additionally, most of the designers charge a reasonable rate that is in line with the budgets of sports organizations.

Q: Does it matter if I am looking to build a FULL solution on LeagueApps or integrate LeagueApps into my existing site?

A: No, not necessarily. A web designer should be able to build a sharp design on LeagueApps, or any other popular content management  systems (some of the more popular CMS tools are WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal). Your designer can integrate the LeagueApps tools and functionality using LeagueApps widgets (more widget instructions here).

Q: What type of information do I need to be prepared to share when reaching out to a recommended designer?

A: Below are some of the key pieces of information you may want to be prepared to share with your prospective designer.

  • Budget
  • Timing
  • Design scope
  • Link to current site (list any pages you want to transfer over)
  • Examples of other sites you dig and want to model after
  • Contact info
  • Best times to be reached.

Q: How can I get introduced to one of these designers?

A: Feel free to connect with them directly. We’ve included their websites and contact information. The LeagueApps team can help make an introduction or connection or even discuss the different designers. Do let us know if you work with one of these designers though so we can add it to the directory and get your feedback on the experience.

Q: What are some examples of sites designed by recommended LeagueApps designers?

Q: I am a designer that is familiar with LeagueApps. How Can I be added to the list?

A: Awesome. Let us know about your work and we’ll gladly add your information to the new community directory.

 

Hit us up if you have any questions about design, or need help connecting with one of our preferred designers. And be sure to share your slick design with us if you invest in a professional design. We love showcasing our partner sites on the LeagueApps Success Stories Page!

An Intramural Baskeball Season To Remember For Team LeagueApps

Company News, LeagueApps In Action, LeagueApps Team

Our newest partnership specialist JD Crabtree shared his prose on our recent undefeated basketball season. It was so good (the season and his write-up) that we’re posting it here for all the world to see. Yes, we are humble bragging…even though we competed in the JV league!

 

 

When you hear the word champions, several sports teams, players, and moments immediately come to mind. The 1972 Miami Dolphins Squad. Michael Jordan in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals. Tiger Woods in the late 90s. John Wooden. Wimbledon. Kirk Hinrich.

Now there is another team that has entered the Valhalla of sports immortality, LeagueApps: The 2013 NYC Social Sports Club Wednesday Intramural Basketball Champions.

A quick overview of the season does not do this team’s journey justice, but it will display the dominance to be had throughout this o so legendary fall. Outscoring their opponents 358 – 256, LeagueApps tore through the competition to a perfect 8-0 season. Out of the 288 minutes played, they only trailed in 2 mere minutes during the opening of the fourth game.

Similar to a J.R. Tolkien masterpiece, this interesting assortment of athletes took on all types of characters and obstructions along their journey. They dealt with sluggish ogres who tried to use brute strength and size to push around the startup squadron. They fended off psychotic point guards that put in more effort after the whistle than during it. Full court presses came constantly at LeagueApps when the bench was scarce. Most games the team had zero preparation before the skirmishes and the opening tip would be the first interaction with the ball. Some would even say that our favorite referee was a siren in theory, as multiple members battled for her attention on and off the court. Regardless of these obstacles, the LeagueApps tribe traveled back home in sweat-filled cabs victorious each time.

This was a season that will be contributed to a team that embodies the LeagueApps culture of transparency, grit, and synergy. It couldn’t have been done without the utilization of each other’s skills and resiliency to stick to our game plan. There were the late game heroics of Adam ‘Hokey Pokey Hoboken’ Galperin in game 6 when he put an end to the opposition’s run with four straight deep jumpers, another closed deal. Rohit’s appearance before his injury provided a spark with great impersonations of Michael Jordan foul-line dunks, but more importantly a tenacious effort on both ends of the court. Jeff Maier confidently answered the call (very similar to our interactions with him at work) in his one game, putting up a MVP-like performance that entailed leading the team in all statistical categories. Asaf and Ess were never in the direct spotlight, but were undoubtedly the core of the team. They threw their bodies around, became the top rebounders and low-post defenders, and made sure everyone on the court knew the support line was closed for the evening. In every competitive team sport you always need to have that deep threat or that striker that can change the momentum of the game at any moment. Chad cemented his Nike’s in that role early on during this season. His long-range assault of deep 2’s and 3’s were put up at an unprecedented percentage and left defenses scrambling to find him in the perimeters of the court. Michael Bindelglass, aka the match-up nightmare, took on about every role one could ask out of a player. Playing the true definition of a point-forward Bindelton took on much of the scoring load, matched up on their big men often, and orchestrated the offense at times. His speed in the open court and physical play down low always presented a match-up that the other teams simply never had an answer for. It is safe to say J.D. has wanted posters across town with his behind the scenes trash talk and pesky point guard play.

However, Every great team must have a leader that brings the troops together; thus enters Darren Russek. A fine example of composure, the captain never became flustered and used his silky skills in charisma and basketball to bring this whole ragtag group together. The management team of Brian and Jeremy knew they had pieced together a championship team and simply stepped back and let their prized players take care of the rest.

LeagueApps even made sure to collect some spirit points along the way and realized that Champions are about more than just hollow trophies and awards. LeagueApps went for the real gold and they knew it was theirs from day one!
