For those who haven't visited the Guild's website in a while, we think you're in for a treat. The freshly redesigned website was installed on our web address over the weekend. The committee of Executive Board members who steered the direction of the new design is excited to finally see it "Go Live". The new site is full of improvements we hope you enjoy and find useful.
Early last year, the Guild engaged OPM Design Group with our wishlist of desired features. OPM worked diligently to implement our requests while keeping us appraised of contemporary design practices and the latest technology. The site now features a responsive design scheme that ensures the same visitation experience throughout your web viewing devices. This contemporary design functionality allows parts of the website to shift and scale to accommodate viewing screens.
We've utilized some new functionality available to better integrate the activity calendar, the page for Gallery 839, the Oral History interviews and The Pegboard pages. The Guild's blog can now live on the website and could be moving there in the near future.
We've also included some brand new features per member and studio requests. The site now has a Member Profile section where members can include samples of their work, links to their online contact points and presences (email addresses, blogs, social media accounts) and where employers can search members by name, job category and availability. There is now a Discussion Forum where Guild members and members of the communities of animation and labor can discuss current events. Finally, there is an online store that will feature merchandise emblazoned with the Guild's logo that can be sold and delivered to you. (we're still finalizing that part, hopefully available soon)
Go visit it now! Tell us what you think.
