In Development


John approached me in December 2018 to talk about the prospect of developing a new website for the Kinofilm festival.  Their website had not been updated for many years, and they were more than ready for a makeover.  Being a non-profit meant that resources were slim, but much of the framework was already in place which meant that the focus could be solely on a new site.


Small resources meant we had to be creative, but after discussions, we agreed to provide the website design and maintenance as part of a sponsorship deal.  A custom theme was developed with a built-in event calendar, as well as custom post types for festivals and films.  Posts were connected by custom redirects and taxonomies, which allowed for each year's festival to take centre stage.
