Elixir is a New England-based, nationally touring contra dance band (of which I am a member). I created a web site for the band in 2007, and completed major redesigns on the site in 2008 and 2010. The current version is powered by WordPress, and includes an online store selling CDs, music downloads, and T-shirts; an embedded gig calendar that syncs with Google Calendar and band members’ desktop calendar applications; a photo and video gallery; streaming music samples; and much more. I designed the CD packaging for both of Elixir’s album releases, created the design for the band’s T-shirts and business cards, and produced dozens of posters for Elixir tours, performances, and other events.
Youth Dance Weekend
Youth Dance Weekend is an annual youth-focused traditional dance and music festival that takes places in central Vermont. Since its start in 2008 I have designed and maintained the web site for the festival, as well as producing T-shirts, posters, postcards, and other promotional materials for use in print and online. The current revision of the YDW web site includes more than a dozen pages, a blog-like section for posting discussion notes and recipes, online event registration and payment, photo gallery, mailing list signup, and many other features. It is built in WordPress and editable by the members of the YDW organizing committee.
