Morpheus Cruises needed a spectacular website to stand out on Sydney Harbour, and VIVidWeb was part of the team that produced it, running project management, copy-writing and general troubleshooting.
The latest in several redesigns for this popular big purple Australian sociopolitical commentary blog; VIVidWeb was asked to provide a magazine/news style front page to showcase recent content at a glance.
Geek Feminism Blog
The Geek Feminism collective wanted to update the site’s look to be more visually appealing, and opted for a minimalist magazine layout with a few special customisations.
Miriam aka Mim wanted to to integrate her online handicrafts store more fully into her blog, and take on a fresh new look in the process. The new site offers post-teasers, clear links to the shop items and a neat block-based display of new content. Special archive pages and other custom templates customised from a WooThemes base template.
Writer and comedian Tracy wanted to combine her existing professional profile site with her long-running writerly blog, to wrap it all up in a new look with streamlined information architecture, and top it off with a favourite photo as the major visual element.
The Allan Lake Show
Allan Lake’s team wanted a new look website for a new radio show, as well as a site that they could more easily manage themselves.
Their site now showcases each team member from the front page, and provides them with plenty of expansion options as they play around with new segments on the show.
Ouyang Dan wanted a more polished site to showcase her writing.
A WordPress CMS install with a personalised custom template has given her new features to play with and greater control over the presentation of content.
A full overhaul of the database plus implementation of various plugins to enhance site security and loading speed were necessary, plus a theme redesign to one that was fast to load and optimised for search engines, yet which kept the familiar look for the blog’s readers so that they were not overwhelmed by too many changes all at once.
Gill Stannard, Naturopath
Gill wanted a professional presence online to promote not only her therapeutic services in Melbourne but also her public speaking and media skills, plus incorporate her existing blogspot blog posts. She also had very particular ideas of what she liked and didn’t like design-wise, which meant incorporating elements from a few select favourite sites into the final design, plus her own photographs of herbs and fresh foods.
Gagging For It Oz Comedy News
A magazine template acts as a portal to comprehensive information – news, reviews, listings – about the Australian comedy scene. This is the latest of several layout updates.
The innovative interactive outreach program of the Australian Greens which was launched in the lead-up to the 2007 Federal election – the first federal parliamentary party to use official party-based blogging to communicate with voters.
VIVidWeb provided advice and technical support for Greensblog, was instrumental in template and design choices, and adapted existing graphics to fit the site as well as generating new images. The site was originally hosted separately, and has since been replaced by individual blogs for each Greens representative as part of their main site.
Mark O’Ryan design
Mark wanted a starkly simple site which would allow his work portfolio to speak for itself. The site incorporates a slideshow and gallery feature, with many features built-in for future expansion of the site if desired.
Hoyden About Town
This is Viv’s personal socio-political commentary blog, and the look is updated roughly annually to keep it fresh and incorporate new features in WordPress as they arrive. Certain visual elements have become part of the look that readers expect, and always form the backbone of a new design.
