Background: Producers of the Golf Shop Radio show desired a fresh launch to coincide with the rebranding of their weekly broadcast show, previously The Golf Mob, in late 2011. The previous web solution, also developed by Thumbknuckle Media, was redesigned from the ground-up to offer a cleaner user experience and more optimization for multiple content formats. To address these key areas for development, Thumbknuckle Media executed a clean build and deployed the new site within four weeks of project inception.
