The Challenge

The King Arts Complex team needed a redesign and rebuild of their old website. Their old website was difficult to update, didn’t reflect their brand well, and was time consuming to maintain. As an arts and culture organization The King Arts Complex needed a website that would help them manage and promote a wide variety of events, programs, and exhibits. They also wanted their website to be a better platform for communicating with community members already involved with them, and attract and educate visitors. Functionally, they needed to be able to update and manage their site quickly and easily so their attention and efforts could be focused on their community and programming.

Brand and Visual Representation

The King Arts Complex brand is strong and dynamic, utilizing many colors from the kente cloth incorporated in the logo. We used these colors and design elements throughout the site design, creating a cohesive look and feel for the website that encompassed the cultural significance and dynamic energy the organization represents. We also incorporated large images showing the variety of programs, classes, and exhibits offered through the King Arts Complex.

Navigation and User Experience

We reorganized the main menu to streamline navigation in line with current best practices for user experience and with organizational priorities in mind. We wanted to make sure that website visitors were able to easily find information on the site. We also wanted the navigation to reflect the various components of The King Arts Complex, including programs, events, rentals, and getting involved.

Program and Event Calendar

One of the core functionality elements The King Arts Complex team needed incorporated in their new website was a calendar to manage and promote their programs and events. We worked with them to find the best solution to fit their needs, including management options, sharing capabilities, and budget.

“I just wanted to say thank you again for yours and Robintek’s amazing service. It used to be a nightmare coming into work every day with the KAC website being down due to no fault of my own. You all have saved me from many headaches. I will be forever grateful.”
