Urban Mahila & Mazdoor Alliance (UMA) is a membership based organisation of urban poor women workers in northern India. It provides services and solutions to improve the lives of its members in a productive and wholesome manner. s a non-governmental organization, it depends mostly on funding and needed a website to target potential investors and donors. The main aim was to highlight the work that they do in a professional manner.
The website had to stand because there are many similar organizations looking for sponsorship. The responsive design was worked around a content-management system using the best of WordPress and HTML. Nifty features include the use of parallax sliding, image scaling, in-page tabs and key-based navigation.

CuraSquare is a online space to connect creatives from different disciplines with a primary focus on film makers. It has been conceived as a website where the members will share articles, connect with each other, post jobs/events and use it as a general resource related to their fields. The content is user-generated- which means that the posts that show up are from the members of the website- not just from the administrators. The design had to look like a proper magazine-type website and not like a web forum. This made it imperative to use WordPress as the base for the CMS.
A wordpress template was used and modified heavily. Apart from a new color scheme and menus, other modifications include changing layouts of pages, setting up registration forms, options for login, options for comments, options to link videos, building profiles, communicating with other users, setting up mailboxes and posting events among others.
