The Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra (SBCO.org) has launched a new website, with improved functionality, design, and navigation. Seeing Is Design was contracted to develop a new back-end CMS in addition to full update of the site design and UI experience. "The website was outdated and needed a completely new look, a website that reflected the high quality of artistic excellence that this critically-acclaimed Chamber Orchestra held in the Santa Barbara community" said James Breen, principle developer for Seeing Is Design.
The new website features an improved homepage design, cleaner layout of page content, and an intuitive and consistent site-wide navigation system. It is also accessible through a wider range of web browsers and devices, including mobiles and tablets, and has been designed to meet all relevant accessibility standards. The right CMS for this project was EllisLab's ExpressionEngine (EE), its flexible, easy to use and will grow with the website.
