Starfish sites are web awards finalists!

The WA-based finalists in the Australian Web Awards were announced this week, and Clever Starfish is excited to report that two of our sites have made the grade.

Sophie Kyron Jewellery is in the final three in two categories – Retail and Sell to Corporate. Sophie’s gorgeous jewellery, worn by celebrities like Cate Blanchett and Kate Ceberano, is presented for both retail and wholesale sale using Clever Starfish’s own shopping cart system, coupled with WordPress for content management and easy news posting.

The WA Youth Music Association (WAYMA) site is shortlisted in the Arts and Events category. The site’s gorgeous and striking design was created by Starfish Levi to try and appeal more to the site’s target audience of young musicians. The site content, news and calendar of events is managed completely by the WAYMA team using the FarCry content management system.

The winners will be announced at a black tie dinner on the 6th of November. We can’t wait!

New look for Youth Music

Clever Starfish are pleased to unveil our latest FarCry-powered site for the Western Australian Youth Music Association (WAYMA).

WAYMA is the non-profit organisation behind youth ensembles such as the WA Youth Orchestra (WAYO) and the WA Youth Chorale. Each year, more than 500 music students participate in the eight ensembles, putting on concerts for audiences throughout the year.

From the redesign, WAYMA wanted a funkier, cooler look better appeal to their target audience of young people. Clever Starfish designer Levi picked a dark background and lots of bright blues, greens and oranges for the design, and drew on WAYMA’s vast archive of amazing photos.

The FarCry content management system allows WAYMA staff to update every last area of content on the site and maintain their numerous photo galleries, as well as keep the event calendar current.

At Clever Starfish, we’re big supporters of the arts – other 2008 projects include the Perth International Arts Festival, the Perth Theatre Company and the St George Cathedral Sculpture Commission Project. We think WAYMA do a great job helping to develop the next generation of musicians and hope the new site makes their lives just a little bit easier!
