Hamilton Arts Council

The Hamilton Arts Council is a local, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the arts and culture in the City of Hamilton by increasing accessibility. Utilizing existing branding, Orbital set out to create North America's best Arts Council website – and we think we did! The new Hamilton Arts Council website is responsive and accessible, meeting and exceeding WCAG and AODA compliance.

Hamilton Arts Council Website

Orbital also created tools that serve as a resource for members of the Hamilton Arts Council, and community as a whole. By developing an online Member Profile builder with Drupal, members are now able to create their own space on the web where they can showcase their art, write blog posts and moderate their social media without the worry of maintaining web space or hosting.

Tight integration with social network APIs, including Twitter and Facebook, the Hamilton Arts Council website helps the organization stay focused by moderating and automating their Tweets and Facebook Statuses automatically.

Online payment integration using the Stripe API allowed Orbital to implement reliable, secure low-cost transactions that enabled easy donation and membership payments. Hamilton Arts Council has experienced a notable increase in the number of members and donations since the launch of their new site.

Lindsay Kelly

Project Manager

Beginning her career as a Business graduate from Mohawk College, one of Lindsay’s strongest assets has always been her wide-range of skills and the diversity of her interests. Following five years of experience managing accounts within the financial sector, Lindsay could no longer ignore her observation that more and more business communications today are happening online. She became drawn to the idea of having the ability to not only communicate effectively on behalf of an organization, but also to have complete control over the outlet being used to promote a company’s image.

Driven by the desire to offer a wide range of multiple skills and services, Lindsay is currently enrolled in the Web Design and Deployment program at McMaster University, which she expects to complete in December, 2013.

As Orbital's Mission Control, Lindsay has effectively managed small, medium and large-scale projects from inception to deployment. 

More on Lindsay's favourite Hamilton hot-spots, customized pumpkins, and her love of timbits (and most things edible) can be found on Twitter, @l_kelly13.
