“Failing to plan is planning to fail”
– someone who planned
Whether you’ve got an existing site, or need a new one, you need to plan either way. While a web designer or programmer can help you build a site, it’s up to you to figure out “What do I need?”

With the help of many, many people and some great teamwork, we officially launched this site for Jody Sperling : Time Lapse Dance
The original redesign was put together by Paris Marashi, while the site design and content management system was executed by Sam Marx
Jody’s upcoming work, Ghosts, will feature a wearable costume assembled by ITP folk (Jenny Chowdhury & Alex Kowal)
The site features a full content management system (run on Drupal), a full media player managed through brightcove, and some nice graphic work provided by her colleagues.
Check out the customized media player here.
During the process, we spent great care taking a look at the works page.
We wanted to make sure we could feature individual photos, videos, and text – all in one area – so the content management system had to be flexible enough to handle all those elements.
During the process, we also setup a facebook page, a blip.tv page, as well as a pro flickr account. The goal of setting up all these sites were simply to allow Jody to extend her reach beyond her site, while still providing a homebase for her work, and image.
In addition to visiting the new site, make sure you check out Ghosts, premiering in October!
