Latest Project: NEW website for the Edmond Fine Arts Institute

We are ending 2013 with a bang! Introducing the all NEW and very much improved website for our friends at the Edmond Fine Arts Institute: EdmondFineArts.com

We have spent the last year working on a variety of projects for FAI including a smooth transition of executive directors (long time E.D. Mitzi Hancuff retired, Shannon Price took over), fundraising, marketing and improving their online presence with increased social media and a brand new website.

FAI Website

The NEW and Improved FAI website

The new site was designed to be easy to navigate, presenting lots of information in a variety of ways. The FAI has a lot of things happening at any given time. Classes for kids and adults, theatre performances, camps, workshops and gallery shows. FAI also manages art programs for the Edmond public schools and Edmond juvenile court system.

This amazing place of creative learning has been one of Edmond’s best kept secrets for almost 30 years. We plan to let all of Edmond, OKC and entire area know all about the great work they do.

Unfortunately, the old website was restrictive, dated and not user-friendly. With activity changing weekly at FAI, the staff needed a platform that was easy to manage and update. We took a hard look at class enrollment, marketing and internal processes needs to find the best uses of online resources for FAI.

Next came design. With so much going on at FAI, we needed to make the design dynamic, intuitive and encompassing. The main function of the website is for students enrolling in classes, so this became priority number one. We also wanted to give the FAI staff more online options for presenting class list, catalogs and fundraising resources to eliminate printing and mailing cost. We took our concept, ideas and design sketches to our friends at T&S Web Design in Edmond for their construction skills and online registration expertise. Tim and his crew made managing the process a breeze.

We still have things to add, tweak and edit (like any website) but overall, we could not be more thrilled with the finished product. Please take a minute to visit EdmondFineArts.com and learn all about the great work they do. You might even sign up for an art class (for you or your kids), see a play or visit the art gallery.
