It’s mid-July so it must be Flynn Series time again! And whenever the new Flynn Series site launches, you can be sure our web development team has been busy! As you may or may not know, Flynn Tix/Flynn Center is one of our oldest clients – one we’ve partnered with regularly for all of their web projects for over a decade, including the always popular Flynn Series site.
A collaborative effort between Vermont Public Radio and the Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium, Eye on the Sky is a Vermont weather resource that provides useful recreational, gardening and astronomical forecasts and much more. As part of the new Fairanks site, we were tasked with overhauling the Eye on the Sky site as well, including creating new archiving functionality as well as integration for forecast audio, along with a slew of other custom features.
After the successful launch of the Community of Observers website for the Fairbanks Museum back in 2012, it was only natural that we partnered together again on their next, larger web project – the complete overhaul and redesign of the Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium main website.
Have you heard the news….2015 is the Year of Arts in Vermont! While we need little excuse to celebrate the arts more than we already do, this year marks the 50th Anniversary of the State’s commitment to building and supporting artistic endeavors through the leadership of the Vermont Arts Council. Take a look at our favorite resources on the Council’s site to explore the arts and learn how VDW partnered with the Council to launch their new website.

For Vermont’s Technology Month, we’re posting about VDW’s contributions to the creative economy and tech community. We start with our work with Symfony, open source software that provides the architecture on which we build custom applications and websites. VDW’s staff are part of a global community of developers who contribute to the tools, documents, and software that powers the Symfony framework.
Earlier this year we launched a website for Smash Your Scale, a revolutionary new online community and therapy program focused on women’s nutrition, health and positive body image. Smash Your Scale chose Vermont Design Works to build their custom and mobile-friendly responsive website, knowing that as a new start-up they couldn’t take any chances when it came to making their website accessible to users, regardless of their device and screen size.
Today we’re excited to announce the launching of several new websites for our most recent client, Vermont Electric Power Company (VELCO). In addition to the company’s primary website, VELCO required separate sites for planning committees and subsidiaries. Each site comes bundled with our proprietary content management system, custom tools and much more. We also built each using responsive design to provide consistent desktop/mobile experiences. Take a look at the new sites and learn a bit about where your electricity comes from today!
