Armadillo Studios is once again proud to be acting as an in-kind sponsor for Bow Valley College’s 2020 VentureQuest Awards.
Since 2015, we have had the opportunity to work with many of the finalists of these awards and provide some of the winners with $1,500 of in-kind online development and guidance to help kick start their business ideas. Most recently we worked with Amber of Once Upon A Story to get her business web site up and running. With the reception banquet this evening, we are looking forward to working with the latest crop of young entrepreneurs from Bow Valley College in 2020.
A couple of years ago, I had the pleasure of presenting at WordCamp YYC on my experiences using WordPress for political campaigns. Earlier this week I stumbled upon the posting of the full talk on WordPress.TV, so I figured it was time to share for those who weren’t at WordCamp Calgary 2017.
With the another round of municipal elections set in Alberta for October 2017, we are about to be bombarded by candidates vying for our votes and attention. But what makes a good Political Campaign Web Site? What makes people take notice of a candidate? And are there lessons about design, branding and functionality that we can learn from campaign web sites to enhance our own business and non-profit web sites. This honest and frank talk will dive into the world of political web design to provide you with ideas on how better tell the story of your organization and get people to buy in to your message.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of giving a talk at WordCamp Calgary 2017 called Campaigning With WordPress: Design and Story Telling Lessons From The World of Political Web Design. At the request of many attendees I’ve attached my slides for download and viewing via Slide Share below.
Thank you once again to the entire team that put on WordCamp Calgary 2017. They did a fantastic job and it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to chat about the intersection of WordPress and the Political technology world. I hope everyone had a great time at the talk.
For the third straight year, Armadillo Studios Inc., was a not only a sponsor of Calgary WordCamp 2016, but one of the co-organizers. This year’s edition of Calgary WordCamp built off the tremendous success of the last two years and was a two-day WordPress extravaganza for a sold out crowd of 150 attendees.
It was an honour to be apart of WordCamp 2016 and to see the WordPress community continue to grow in this amazing city. The entire organizing committee is ecstatic at the reception we received from the community once again and are incredibly thankful to all our sponsors, volunteers and speakers who made WordCamp Calgary 2016 the best one yet.
Earlier this week, Armadillo Studios had the pleasure of launching the redesign of the Alpha House Society web site. The Alpha House Society is a critical organization within the fabric of Calgary’s non-profit ecosystem, which provides safe and caring environments for individuals whose lives are affected by alcohol and other drug dependencies. The team at Alpha House does amazing work within the community and as a company it was an absolute pleasure to work them on this great project. And while I’m excited to announce the launching of their new online identity, what I’m really looking forward to is to seeing them bolster their online presence over the coming months.
With the launch of Alpha House’s new web site, I started thinking about all the non-profit and charitable organizations that Armadillo has had the pleasure to work with over the past few years. Given that non-profits and local charities are one of Armadillo Studio’s favourite clientele, I figured it would be a great time to showcase some of the great project’s that Armadillo has had the pleasure of on working over the past little while.
So with out further delay, please find below a list of the projects we’ve worked on over the past few years.
Working with local non-profits and charities to help them improve their online presence and social media clout is an absolute pleasure. For many organizations the biggest issues in regards to their communication plan revolves around creating a unique and professional online presence with a limited set of resources to help tell their story. So given the economic uncertainty in the city at the moment, if you are a non-profit or local charity looking to create a unique online identity get in touch today.
