Dave Moldover made an 11th hour decision to bring back a post-Covid MADjam for 2022. In January, he contacted us with the task of refreshing the design and updating the content for the March event. We accomplished both in a matter of weeks, and opened Registration right on schedule.
The team at P4J gave DIY their best shot, but when they realized they were in over their head, they started looking at event sites for a lead on a designer. They found Viva Design Studio’s link at the bottom of their favorite sites, so they contacted us. We did our thing, and the P4J ladies were delighted with the results.
Kristen Shaw had a valuable community resource — a CT dance calendar of weekly and monthly area WCS happenings. But she needed to make it available to a wider audience. So we created an attractive web page with an intuitive interface that works on desktop — and on the go!
John Lindo was teaching and DJing at a cool NJ honky-tonk in the early days of Viva Design Studio. Over the years we talked about ideas for websites. In 2018, the time was finally right, and we did a redesign of John’s “personal brand” website. We found photos and wrote copy that captured the essence of John Lindo while providing visitors with pertinent information about John’s global appearances. It proved to be the first of many collaborations in the years that followed.
The NASDE team was doing an extensive database restructuring behind the scenes. They thought it was time to update the website technology at the same time, and asked Viva Design Studio to convert their site to Wordpress without dramatically changing the overall look and UX. They felt it was important that accessing tour data be the focus of the site. We agreed and kept the site true to the original while upgrading the technology.
In 2023, NASDE stepped up to incorporate the Rising Star Tour under its umbrella. We were assigned the role of keeping the schedule and graduate content updated. Later the same year, we redesigned the entire website.
Co-Event Directors Rob Baen & Sheila Purkey were in a spot when they lost access to their hosting accounts and eventually their event websites. We were able to retrieve most of the important content from the internet archives, and gave the entire Philly Swing website a significant design update, based on the framework we set up on libertyswing.com. In 2022, we took on the additional role of Social Media manager, creating video reels and still media for both FB and Instagram.
Co-Event Directors Rob Baen & Sheila Purkey were in a spot when they lost access to their hosting accounts and eventually their event websites. Following the same process we used to recreate and improve phillyswing.com, we created a new website for Freedom Swing. In 2022, we took on the additional role of Social Media manager, creating video reels and still media for both FB and Instagram.
Kendra Zara and Ward Roberts came to VDS with exciting news– they were the new event directors for Michigan Classic. Their concern: Could VDS create a brand new, fully functional website before tickets went on sale? Two weeks? Absolutely!
