Austin Museum Partnership

2009 and 2014

The Austin Museum Partnership is a consortium of Austin-area museums organized to promote collaboration and highlight the events and exhibits available across the city. The original organization website was based in Flash and hard to maintain and update by volunteers and the member organizations.

I redesigned the AMP website with the goals of both highlighting the member organizations and providing an easily readable monthly event calendar. I choose WordPress as the CMS because many of the members had previous experience with it and I could customize it enough to streamline the event creation and organization information editing process.

In 2014 I redesigned the site again, removing unnecessary pages and creating a responsive template so that users can locate museums and events from their phone on the go just as easily as they can from their desktop browser.
