The Council approached Viva Design Studio with a request to add two new event forms to the site. What we discovered was a neglected backend with outdated WP, plugin and themes, plus no backup file. We carefully constructed a staging site that included the original, extensive functional php customizations, performed all the necessary version updates, and created the new forms. Viva will be responsible for ongoing maintenance and content creation for the WSDC site.
Trilogy Swing was about to announce its return to dancing after the pandemic break when Rick Dauss found himself with a neglected website in need of an overhaul. Viva saw Rick’s FB plea for help, and stepped up to help. A complete redesign with improved navigation and flow helped Rick bring Trilogy back in 2022 — bigger and better than ever.
Pleased with the design we created for his personal brand, John Lindo approached us again to redesign his popular swing event, Liberty Swing.
His only request, to make it clear and easy to navigate–and promote ticket sales.
We went with a streamlined navigation bar, featuring a can’t-miss button-styled Register link plus pages that pared down the clutter and highlighted what Liberty is all about – a dance event that pulls out all the stops to ensure a good time!
In 2021, our friend John Lindo took over the top spot at The Open Swing Dance Championships, as Chairman and Event Director. Once again, John came to Viva Design Studio to manage the website and social media for this long-running and prestigious event. The pandemic allowed us a full year to rebrand, reorganize the content and navigation, polish the layout and design. When we were ready to launch, the site was completely updated with fresh content for the 2022 event. Viva then promoted the event on Facebook for 4 months leading up to the event. The Open Swing Dance Championships 2022 proved to be a tremendous success!
