Developer Bio: Digital Bloom Internet is a small Canadian firm that has been designing and developing websites since 1999. For the last few years, we have focused exclusively on Joomla-powered sites.
Chris Clay - Proprietor & Web Developer. Chris designed the template and performed all site development tasks.
Crystal Sawyer Communications Consultant. Crystal met with Glenora staff to assess their needs, develop a site map, and advise on content creation.
What are some of the challenges you face?
Glenora's previous site was looking very dated and was also difficult to maintain. We were brought in to develop a professional site that could also be maintained by staff and volunteers without the need for programming knowledge.
