The Design House team designed and programmed this dynamic website incorporating a custom client-administered Content Management System. The site was built to the strict guidelines defined by the Canadian Culture Online Technical Guide.
This project was funded and critiqued by Canadian Heritage, whose coordinator
provided the following feedback:
"This is a well-designed, graphically intelligent website that uses gorgeous colours and generally follows all Tech Requirements. I've suggested to our senior technical specialist that your site be used for internal training sessions, and as a great example of good work for 2008-2009 Partnership Fund projects. Believe me, we love to see quality work like yours when it happens!"
