Kansas City Art Institute Website

The Kansas City Art Institute needed a website that would represent the school visually while being easy enough to maintain to allow nontechnical users throughout the campus to manage the content of the site. I was responsible for the architecture of the main site as well as four sub-sites and the content management system (a hybrid between Macromedia Contribute and a custom-built solution). The centerpiece of the website is the Digital Gallery, a place where the university can showcase the work that their faculty, alumni, and students create.

The KCAI CMS was an amalgamation of Adobe Contribute for the more static parts of the site and a custom PHP solution for the dynamic portions.
