Energy Connections 2016 website screenshot webdesign by Virtual Wave Media

The event page for Energy Connections 2016 in Vancouver is designed in a one-page format look with sub pages leading to information about speakers, sponsors, or event information in general. In contrasting colours, the different areas of the page are clearly separated from each other without interfering with content presentation and call-to-actions.

Virtual Wave Media re-designed the BCSEA webpage together with Blackfly Solutions to meet a number of different requirements. The webpage displays the important contribution of news articles that BCSEA offers in the field of Sustainable Energy Discussion. 

Moreover, the organization itself needed a structured Call-to-Action set up to attract new customers. A third pillar of the web presence was the display of the different chapters within BCSEA. 

This complex structure is based on a drupal set up with CiviCRM functionality to manage the ever growing number of members.

The International Institute for Child Rights requested a web presence that displayed their core values, projects and message as a non-for-profit organization that supports and fights for child rights all over the world.

The website was also an umbrella site for their numerous projects and programs. In this umbrella function, the website was set up to automatically display events and resources from other IICRD-connected pages.

When Royal Roads approached us with the project of setting up a collaboration platform that allows students of Royal Roads University to work together beyond course structures and even after they graduated university, we were excited. Gathr.ca is a platform that lets people get together in groups around topics of interest in order to "create the change they want to see in the world" (one of Royal Roads University slogans).

Features of the platform are event management, collaborating in groups, a bulletin board, a resource library and an extensive user and media management. This type of platform can be transferred to other areas, such as community platforms or internal business collaboration platforms, to mention but a few.

The Dragonfly Child Care and Family Centre or PICCS on Pender Island was looking for a website that enabled them to communicate their mission statement, describe their programs, and published their events. We felt the design had to reflect characteristics of a child care centre in general, and elements of the Dragonfly Child Care Centre in particular. Therefore, the colour scheme that was used here were basic colours on a neutral background. The design elements all reflected items that can be found in a child care centre (crayons, brushes, little bits of paper, paint blobs etc.). As a very personal touch we decided to add a front page as an entrance with the same lettering as the original entrance of the centre in order to achieve a high level of recognition among the site users.

However, it was important to keep easy navigation and a clear overview in mind, so we added a lot of white space. We also colour coordinated the content of one page with the respective crayon. The active page is emphasized with a slightly indented crayon.

The Friedrich-List-Schule in Kassel, Germany is a vocational school with numerous different departments. The challenge was to present the complex number of classes, courses, departments and partners of the school in a well-defined navigation structure. The colour scheme with green as its main colour was predefined by the school's logo. We chose to add a matching turquois and red as signal colours for call-to-action buttons. 

Different basic structures for the different content types were predesigned by Virtual Wave Media to make sure that new content is always visually represented in the same way as the existing content. This makes it easy for the school administrators to create new content without having to worry about messing existing structures.

The design of the page combines images of the school and students visually in form of a slide show on the front page with the easy to read and find content elements. Moreover, this page offers the school to import their Outlook calender data into the web calendar, and has user areas that are accessible with specific logins only.
