Arts and Artisans
Uminari Taiko is Vancouver Island's first taiko drumming ensemble. Its mission is to share and promote the art of Japanese taiko drumming through teaching and performance. Uminari Taiko came to Cool New Media looking for a Drupal developer to complete and launch their new Drupal based website.
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 Subseqently, updates stopped and the website fell out of date with Rod's current portfolio of work and exhibition schedule.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.
NativeArt.com started as a fully managed directory of First Nations artists where we profiled an artist and presented their work for sale. Over time, it became difficult to make a viable business out of that model so the site was converted to become a hub for finding Native Art around the world.
