San Francisco Conservatory of Music
Making beautiful music with our agency partners.
The San Francisco Conservatory of Music provides a comprehensive education that prepares graduates to navigate through the world of adulthood and find the balance between their intellectual, artistic, professional, and individual goals. The SFCM leadership team needed a full web transformation — one that created a strong school identity and an online experience that conveyed the Conservatory’s unique mission and offerings. Beyond visual beauty, the site had to function well for its users, enabling them to access relevant content and intuitively complete tasks on the site. For the SFCM staff, streamlining the content administration process was critical.
In partnership with our friends at Mule Design, we constructed a platform that propels the brand experience forward while accomplishing the business goals of SFCM. As with many projects, there were exciting and challenging complexities. Not only did the experience require carefully-crafted content, but the sheer volume of information meant we had to take a thoughtful approach to front-end execution. The site had to be flexible enough to accommodate a wide range of data without compromising the CMS administrator experience.
The site also features a deep integration with EMS scheduling software, which the Conservatory uses to manage their extensive performance schedule. Our integration ensures that events are pulled into the site on a scheduled basis, editors can embellish and tag the events in Drupal, and everything stays in sync with the EMS system. The end result is an up-to-date, content-rich, and easy to use Performance Calendar.
