It’s always invigorating when working with great clients and a few weeks back, I had the pleasure of launching the redesigned Kansas City Repertory Theatre website: kcrep.org. Everyone inside the organization was just wonderful to work with from the initial inquiry call to checking off the final punch list item.
And because we operate on an annual license fee-based system that includes unlimited training and support, I get to interact with them on a regular basis. Every project has something special going on and this was no exception but what really stood out was the very natural “yes, and…” approach.
Since we design inside a live environment, it means clients begin discovering all the cool, new features at their disposal and I have yet to encounter a situation where that doesn’t change their outlook.
As a result, it’s common for designs to evolve and thanks to a team member with some serious web skills, Digital Marketing Manager Dayna Meyer, they managed to take one of our most versatile design elements and run with it. Case in point, this image grid based interactive component they used to increase engagement at one of their event pages:
You’ll find all sorts of sections throughout the site that use the same tool to build a variety interactive elements. But really, what helped make the project special were the people involved so if you’re in the mood for a little design inspiration sugar this Friday, head over to KCRep.org.
