As part of the web team for Portshowlio 2015, I've been working on designing and developing the WordPress site showcasing our graduating class. Every year it is always a challenge to improve upon the previous year, and this year we decided to up the ante and work on some more advanced functionality. Part of this included student filters.
Because the Graphic Design program at Seattle Central is more of a vocational program, we cover a lot of topics in two years. By the end of second year, most everyone has settled into their niches and has an array of design skills. We wanted to include some functionality that would allow site visitors to filter students based on exclusive combinations of skills. When skills are selected, only students with those exact combinations of skills will be shown (rather than students with any of those skills shown).
