WordPress Child Theme Customisation and Masonry | Isotope

In late 2015 I had the pleasure to work with the team at Lady Geek on an urgent project to develop a better way to display their Empathy Index before it was due to appear in the Financial Times.

Although I have used Masonry on a number of projects before, this was my first time using Isotope for the front-end sorting/filtering and I am really impressed with the results.

Beyond the Isotope front-end, this section is powered by Custom Posts with custom fields for the logo and Empathy Score. This has made it super-easy for the client to manage the index in the back-end - for instance to add new companies or edit the scores after future reviews.

N.B. The off-the-shelf theme they used was abysmal so please only judge me for the page in the link at the bottom of the page.
