This project entailed designing and developing a prototype website and community platform for this Toronto-based non-profit which creates physical spaces for creative communities to live and work.
Over the last 24 years, Artscape has developed a reputation as Canada's leading practitioner in multi-tenant space development for the arts and culture sector, successfully transforming a portfolio of underutilized buildings across Toronto into dynamic community assets. Artscape projects are designed to build and leverage the local community's cultural assets and creative resources while serving as catalysts for neighborhood growth and transformation.
We were commissioned to develop a design concept and website prototype which would act as a platform to house virtual micro-sites for each of their physical buildings and conceptualize bringing their total tenancy community online.
We initially created a basic design which would reflect their stature as an organization yet offer creative options for representing the visual identity of each micro-site through a custom color palette and photo gallery header-slideshow.
The prototype website was developed using the Drupal platform for Artscape's internal consideration - it was never launched as a live website.
