Perth Theatre Company has been part of the Perth arts scene since 1983, taking up residence at the State Theatre Centre in 2010. Their old WordPress site was in need of an overhaul to accomodate an increasing amount of content in a way that was easy to manage. We created a whole new responsive design for the website and customised pages with flexible content areas and many custom fields to keep the layout of show details consistent. The changes were dramatic, resulting in a site that is not only easier to update, but allows for more flexiblity in the way content areas are used.
The home page features a dynamic banner area, automatic preview of the latest blog post, newsletter signup field, Facebook feed and two static feature areas for promotions.
The pages for shows use flexible content blocks with two size options, allowing a number of eye-catching previews to be set up with ease.
The blog offers glimpses behind the scenes of PTC productions and all the latest news from the company.
Our somewhat metaphorical LaunchCake was an apple and blueberry strudel from Corica Pastries. Like a good theatre show, strudel is complex and has several layers, leaving the consumer with a sense of fullness afterwards. (This is less than 1/3 of the strudel…the whole thing was so long it wouldn’t fit on our cake stand!)
