The redesign of the IEFA websites was completed in partnership with Yann Fortier (project manager) and NEWAD (art direction). The contents of three different sites were migrated into a single platform, to provide more consistent URLs and a seamless navigation between the conferences and their host cities (Montreal, Toronto and Miami). Drupal was (and remains) the best-suited CMS for such an endeavour. Its Context module allowed us to fine-tune the sidebar contents, as well as the aesthetics of each section.

The client now benefits from the following:

  1. a better relationship between speakers, multimedia assets (photos, videos) and their respective conference sessions;
  2. improved SEO, since the conference's programs were converted from pdf to html.
  3. easy integration of speakers' photos and bios (or partner logos) into custom content types;
  4. economies of scale with regards to software maintenance.
