Hello everyone, I hope all is well. We are getting ready for an exciting moment for the Fresno Arts Council and that will be the unveiling of the new corporate website + a revamp of our centralized events calendar for the arts in Fresno County. Now you might ask why we are sharing this information. We do mainly for two reasons: first, to update you (the arts community) that we as an organization are progressively improving especially in presenting local arts information (both our artists and arts/culture events) to the world; and second, we would like to ask for peer review of the home page mock-ups as well as to let you know that this is the best time to contact us if you would like to be a strategic or media partner of FAC (ie. tourism agencies, foundations, etc., tv/radio stations). It does not cost anything to be a partner, we just have to co-promote each other. Anyway, here are the 2 mock-ups and please fire away with kudos, constructive criticisms, suggestions, and such... By the way, this will significantly change our workflow when it comes to event submissions (it will be better, I promise), of which I will share more in detail prior to launch. Cheers... Victor Ramayrat Community Host Update (9/15/2009): The city links on the top of the websites won't be active on launch but will be produced this year. We have to work with each cities to highlight what they are doing for the arts community and place their arts events. If you know anybody who's in the position to talk to us, please refer them to this blog. Thank you so much for participating in this conversation.
FresnoArts.net Main Page
This will replace the page when you go to fresnoarts.net (not my.fresnoarts.net, which will stay)
- The left sidebar is an accordion user interface (so that it will only show one segment at a time (refer to the fresnoartscouncil.org for the example).
- Advertisement opportunities are available for arts organizations and related businesses/shows only.
- Pro-bono advertisements are available to one of the ad space on the right sidebar.
FresnoArtsCouncil.org Corporate Page
Tightly integrated with FresnoArts.net platform, the FAC website uses the same data set (artists profile, arts organization, event listing, etc...)
