The site for MIX was created in Wordpress on Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 R2.

The team describes how designers and Web developers work closely together to create the product for visitmix.

They also describe how to use TypeKit to provide fonts that are not web-safe. TypeKit allowed them to create cool sites that are optimized for search engines (SEO) without using images.
