PGS Website History

My last post called the current Public Good Society web page version three. I’ve been working for the PGS for a while, so it is indeed the third website I have made for them.

My father had hard codded the original website for them and I volunteered in 2010 to make them a visual one.  I hadn’t actually made a website before this endeavor. So I found a book on the topic of Dreamweaver and taught myself.

The Website Below was created in 2010 and went live within the year. 

All the content for it was brought over from the text based website. That was alright at the time as all the content for the page was static. While I was the webmaster; that didn’t involve much at this point.
The Public Good society have a newsletter that they circulate twice a year. That prompted the semi-regular updates to the site and after I started attending their events I had pictures for the site as well.

By 2011 I had made a website for the Atlantic Geoscience Society, Federation Of Community Organizations, and the Halifax Association for Community Living. I had become much better and my first website was a rather poor showing now.  So I took initiative and designed a new website and it was instantly approved for use. Whole process took two days.  A rather good production time.
Version two can be seen below.

I updated the width of the spread to be in line with common resolutions at the time. Visually it was quite nice but I was still trying to make a spread based on their logo. Some fool had made It using a black background. That fool may in fact be myself, something I regret in hindsight. The result was a very dark color scheme. 

Version 2.5 moved the content from “what’s new” to the home page and turned that page into a media page to accommodate all my photos along with the newsletters.

Version 3 was needed for about a year before it came to fruition. The webpage started hosting the Echo and there was the need for an archive page.

Version three(the current build) can be seen below

PGS website Ver3

The website I’ve been working on for the Public Good Society has gone live. While not in a complete state it’s been uploaded so their board can have a look at it.

It can be found at the fallowing link

Still not done but it’s all uploaded and stuff and that’s quite neat.

Public Good Society: New Website!

Earlier in the year I expressed an interest in redesigning the website of the Public Good Society. I’m their webmaster and the a lot of new content didn’t have a proper home on their old website.

In addition, the website had started to play host to The Dartmouth Echo a local publication. An additional page was needed to display an archive of back issues.   

A short while ago: I was contacted by two members of their board, Leigh Beauchamp Day & Kate Watson. I’m designing a new version of the website and they’ll be helping me write updated content.

Below is my template for the new PGS website.

Sea View Landing 2

As the last thing I published here was an incomplete version of my website for Nova Corp. The first thing I will publish upon returning will be the complete version.

Barring some problems getting it uploaded it’s been rather well received and just recently I was contacted to perform an update.

Sea View Landing

The Novacorp Website is now live, the URL can be found below. While being more extensive a project than I thought it to be, it was also exceptionally uneventful.

In retrospect, this project was much too easy and far to devoid of complication. I can only imagine something terrible is in the works for me.

Well now I’ve just gone and made myself worried.  D :

Upload Trouble

I’ve finished the website for Novacorp and I’m heading back into my  research.  My client and I have been having trouble uploading the site though/

When my contact returns to work on Tuesday we’ll be tacking another crack at it. So I should have a link mid next week.

This week I've been working on a website for Novacorp, a property management company, whom I was referred to by my contact at Dress for Success Halifax. I've completed the template and have just been fleshing out the pages. 

The website is  for a building that is currently under construction, as such a lot of the content is temporary which has been a hindrance at times. The image on the top right is a render from the architect that is going to be replaced with a picture of building… When there is a building to take a picture of.
