Early this year FlynnTix, long-time friends and clients of Vermont Design Works, approached us with a request for new website functionality – customer chosen seat selection. The “Select Your Own Seat” project arose out of a need to meet the demands of the modern web user who expects to choose airline seats, as well seats to concerts and major sporting events. In the end our designer and application developers created a solution that is visually appealing, easy to use and allows users to find the perfect seat without any hassle.
With a portfolio boasting such names as NECI, FlynnTix and Lake Champlain Ferries, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we often see our clients in the news, and that was never more true than last week. Today we take a look at just a handful of stories that caught our eye recently.
Vermont Design Works is thrilled to announce that we’ve just launched this year’s Flynn Series website. As one of our earliest clients, FlynnTix has returned to us year after year to build their Flynn Series site, in addition to other ongoing web work on both the Flynn Center and Flynn Tix sites. The 2013/14 Flynn Series site went live earlier this month as tickets went on sale for Flynn members July, 12. Tickets go on sale to the general public starting on July 30.
We’re currently working on an Online Library application for Exemplars that will allow teachers to download teaching materials that their district administrators have purchased for their use, rather than require them to share CDs, as they currently do. As you may know we launched a brand new website for Exemplars last fall and a few months later began work on their new online store, as well as pay-per-click online advertising campaigns. Both the eCommerce solution (online store) and the new Exemplars Online Library are set to launch in early 2013.
Our longtime client FlynnTix recently approached us to help them build a splash page/ordering system to support a new ticket package promotion they’re running for the first time. The promotion, known as Six Pack Onstage, launched last week and is a community effort geared toward getting the Burlington area’s young professional community interested in and enjoying the performing arts at a variety of local venues.
Our developers have always prided themselves on not only producing great looking websites, but also creating sophisticated web applications. As our clients increasingly demand more than just traditional websites, we plan and custom develop these applications to meet their specific needs. Last week we launched our latest example with the Sparkle Stories website, which includes a back-end user account area and complete eCommerce solution.
It’s hard to believe that we launched the Trinity School website for our friends in Menlo Park over a year ago, but we’re glad to have maintained our close relationship with them and we’re excited to begin another new project with this. Our 2012 Trinity project will be a parent/staff portal that will serve as a central access point for all of the school’s various current systems.
We’re excited to announce that FlynnTix, one of our oldest clients, once again returned to VDW to have the new Flynn Series website developed for the 2012-13 season. We launched the new Flynn Series site last Thursday (6/12) when the Flynn begin selling tickets for this season’s shows to Flynn members at discounted rates of up to 15% off.
Today we’re really excited to announce our renewed partnership with the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund on their new Vermont Food System Atlas. We actually developed and launched their main website back in 2010, but VSJF has come back and contracted with VDW once again, this time to develop a custom application for their Farm to Plate Initiative. The VT Food Atlas will essentially act as the web portal to all things related to the F2P project.
We’re excited to announce today’s launch of the new Community of Observers site for the Fairbanks Museum. As we explained back in July, this site allows citizen scientists, including individuals, school groups and anyone else who likes to observe nature; to record what they see going on around them and share that information in a collaborative effort to track the impacts of climate change on the environment.
