Beaux Arts Krewe

Beaux Arts Krewe

Birmingham Beaux Arts Krewe is a philanthropic organization benefiting the Birmingham Museum of Art. They wanted a web site that would serve their members and showcase the Krewe’s efforts to the wider public.

I was pleased to help them with a visually pleasing and functional site built on a WordPress platform. Much of their content is restricted to members only, but the areas accessible to the public include information about the organization, the history, the heraldry, and the art purchased by the museum using Krewe donations.

The members only area includes forms, bylaws, membership information and a directory.

Life & Style PR

Life & Style PRLife & Style PR, a division of Panorama Public Relations, wanted to revamp their web site to update the look, functionality, and incorporate more of their team’s personality. They wanted to feature the work they have done for clients and put a fashion-forward face on their digital presence. The site was made responsive and the content was expanded to focus on their strengths and services.

The colors used in the site were taken from the parent company branding to create a more familial relationship between the two companies. Professionally taken photos add style, personality, and punch to a homepage slider of messages about their business focus and strategy.

The new site includes features to enhance SEO, social media integration, video player, and Slideshare embedding. Since they were already on WordPress, they had a leg up on the site revamp. A few plugins were updated, and several were added to incorporate desired features.

A projects page features a thumbnail gallery of their work that can be built upon going forward. The blog is more prominently featured and will be added to much more frequently. Life & Style PR also allowed me to publish a guest post on sensory branding and the Oscar Mayer bacon scented alarm app.

Linly Helflin Unit

linlyheflin.orgThe Linly Heflin Unit was founded in 1919 as a women’s service organization. Since 1923 the major focus of the group has been to further the education of young women in Alabama. To date, over 3,000 four-year scholarships have been awarded to Alabama girls attending Alabama colleges and universities.

The organization needed an updated website with the ability to easily edit the content, accept donations, and have a members only area for some content. WordPress provided a platform that would transform their web presence into a modern and user friendly web site. Features of this improvement included a pictorial membership directory, donations via Paypal, contact form, a homepage slider, and more pictures throughout the site. The site used a branded color palette and was SEO optimized.

Client requested help to move their HTML site from YP.com to an independent hosting service. This involved communication with ATT to move the domain registration to the new host and editing all pages to remove  proprietary code and make the pages function on the new platform. I added a lightbox gallery/slideshow of the clients work and an email contact form.
