Whether you’re looking to post your schedule of yoga classes at the neighborhood rec center or run a yearly event with thousands of attendees we have the functionality to make managing the scheduling, tickets, and door checks at your event a breeze.

Community Action Initiative

Community Action Initiative came to us to create an integrated WordPress Network of sites. We created a fresh new design for the main site, worked with them to develop a streamlined data architecture, and created a fast, responsive template that is custom built to fit their needs. Their other network sites (Open Answers and Healthy Drinking BC) both run off a custom theme we developed for them that showcase custom built forum functionality. All of the sites on their network give the administrators the ability to manage Events, Training, Resources, and other Custom Post Types. A custom built page builder gives them the ability to create new pages with bright and engaging layouts without suffering the performance penalty.

Contemporary Art Gallery

We worked closely with Contemporary Art Gallery to carry out their website redesign. Using a concept supplied by CAG we migrated their existing content into a new WordPress install, and updated their WooCommerce templates. We then built a lightweight and efficient custom theme and the site now loads significantly faster, giving their users a more responsive experience on both mobile and desktop devices. We also applied User Experience techniques to streamline event and exhibit management which makes it easier for Gallery staff to manage and visitors can see what’s on at the gallery at a glance.

British Columbia Association of Healthcare Auxiliaries

We worked closely with British Columbia Association of Healthcare Auxiliaries (BCAHA) to update their home page on their existing WordPress theme, and migrate their site to our managed hosting. New additions to the home page include a user-friendly capability to feature news and events, automate recent news carousel, and interactive event calendar. The changes to the theme also feature a flexible slideshow and unique BCAHA functionality available to site administrators through custom shortcodes.

Our managed hosting means BCAHA gains all the benefits of our suite of security and performance tools, ensuring the site’s security and speed are always first in line.

Osher Center

We partnered with a data visualization company, Exaptive, to create the Osher Center at Harvard Medical School website. We used WordPress as a CMS for staff to post news and event listings. Our custom backend tools allow them to administer their content and associate multiple events and news entries. We also built a custom plugin for the dynamic XAP interactive content that maps professionals within their Integrative Medicine network.

A specialized method of managing featured News & Events gives administrators the ability to identify content that needs to be prioritized on the home page, and custom date based event queries automates the display of upcoming events.

Italian Cultural Centre

The Italian Cultural Centre (Il Centro) is a community hub for people in Vancouver seeking banquet venues, cultural events, workshops, and Italian classes. The site presents their range of services and we’re using a WordPress multisite system to support multiple website from one dashboard. Sites on the network also take advantage of WooCommerce integration and Il Centro can sell tickets to their events without the overhead of a third party reseller.

Vancouver Academy of Music

The VAM site was designed and built using the WordPress CMS to display the wide variety of music education available at the school. The fully responsive custom theme features custom fields, multiple custom post types,  secure contact forms, and is fully integrated with our custom payroll and registration tools. Our suite of custom plugins for VAM include Custom Faculty Payroll, Student Registration, Year End Controller Reports, and Registrar Management.

Hort Education

We migrated the Hort Education site from their old, difficult to use CMS to an integrated WordPress network. This allow them to feature content published on any of the other sites on that WordPress network, keeping the home page content fresh. We also did a redesign update on this site, keeping elements of the original design intact and updating it to be fully responsive and display across all devices. The design features slideshows, calendars, and dynamic content. Additional features include: event, job, and applicant registrations, as well as numerous custom post types. 

Bring the Music

We designed and built this lightweight responsive template with an emphasis on flexibility. Stripping down event management to it’s core, we provided a simple solution that fit the requirements of the site, without bogging it down with unnecessary and unwanted plugins and fluff. The theme is responsive both to changing device sizes and flexible content requirements.
