Cool New Media is a tiny web design studio founded by designer, front-end web developer and web consultant Kevin Slagboom. We build simple, readable web sites on top of standards compliant code and we're located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
We Build and Manage Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla! web sites
Successful websites are always changing. A content management system powered by WordPress, Drupal or Joomla! makes it easy to add stories, pages, images, videos, and more. Site owners can edit and manage content 'in-page' simply by logging in and clicking an 'Edit' link.
Charlesworth Fine Art is the website for acclaimed Canadian artist Rod Charlesworth. Their prior website was developed as a static HTML site and although it was techincally effecient, it required someone with HTML and web publishing experience to make simple content changes. Subseqently, updates stopped and the website fell out of date with Rod's current portfolio of work and exhibition schedule. It was clear that Charlesworth Fine Art needed a solution where they could make simple updates.
Cool New Media recently helped out Walker Hospitality with two of their Joomla! based websites Oak Bay Beach Hotel and DiscoveryClub.ca. Walker Hospitality needed a Joomla! developer to bridge support for their websites and provide some techincal assistance with SEO changes in the interim while their new web site development team worked to get up to speed with the Joomla CMS. Thanks to Shawna Walker and her business. We're glad we could assist.
Drupal, like Joomla, is another major open source Content Management System (CMS) for building presentation websites, news sites, and other web applications.
Cool New Media now builds and supports Drupal based websites.
