PROJECT: Toronto Audio Engineering SocietyWebsite Redesign
Features: Mobile & Tablet Responsive
A Website Redesign project for the Toronto Section of the Audio Engineering Society, this mobile-responsive website markets to potential members and informs current members of upcoming events. It includes an extensive bulletin archive dating back to the 1992.
We are a mid-sized not-for-profit organization that holds monthly meetings and occasional special events for our membership. We previously communicated with our membership with an html-based website, a pdf bulletin that members could print and post at their workplace, and an email notice informing them of our monthly meetings. We updated our social media sites manually, yet another step. Creating all of this was taking a day’s work (including creating the content). The look of the html website was especially dog’s breakfast, reflecting my HTML 1.04 coding capabilities.
We approached Blue Orchard to develop a system that would enable us to much more quickly create and disseminate our content. Using WordPress, we are now able to quickly create a meeting notice, and send that notice via email, update our social media sites and enable our members to print out a formatted version if they wish. The whole process now takes less than an hour, and the website and associated postings look professional and modern.
From the moment when we first reached out to her, Deb grasped our needs very quickly, and has demonstrated unfailing patience as our committee-based decision making process ground its way through the design phase and authorization process. We strongly endorse her skills as a web designer and communicator.Earl McCluskie

Although a static HTML website served the Toronto AES for many years, the advent of social media, blogging, and mobile use, prompted the Executive Committee to embark on a website redesign, which would enable them to more easily post updates and create bulletins distributed as email newsletters from right within the WordPress control panel.
