While a trainee for the group, I worked with talented designer Nick Misani to deliver a complete re-imagining of a web presence for this Japanese Drumming group based in NYC. This is a Wordpress-based site, includes Paypal, Google Calendar, Facebook and Twitter integration, and allows non-technical members to post updates.
This site was built to replace an existing site for ITC, and my first project using the Ruby on Rails framework. The site includes a complete administrative backend and user registration system, allowing users to submit content to be featured on the site. All the Events, Groups, and News are kept in a MySQL DB. The site went live in Aug. 2009, and is currently a work in progress.
Technologies used: PHP, HTML, CSS
The codebase for this site is a modified version of that written for the IHS Trumpets site. The major element is the template system which is implemented in an almost identical way. It's my first fixed-width site, and also was a (small) step up on the design scale from the IHS Trumpets site.
