Welcome to the new

This week we're proud to introduce the new This site is the newly beautiful home for blog posts, project news and event announcements about the wide range of activities happening at the Social + Interactive Media Centre. We hope you'll visit regularly (and subscribe to our feed) so that you can stay up-to-date with the latest digital research and innovations at Emily Carr and beyond.

The new site reflects a lot of work by a lot of different people at Emily Carr and beyond. In particular I'd like to give a huge shout-out to:

  • Raised Eyebrow, the Vancouver-based web design company that built the site in Drupal. Thanks especially to Magnus & Lauren for many months of help!
  • Myron Campbell, the rockstar MAA student who designed our funkadelic new look
  • David Aitken, a freshly minded Emily Carr grad who did a lot of the production work to help implement the new site design
  • Cari Bird, who designed our new ECUAD-tastic logo

But most of all I want to give a huge thank you to Sandra Dametto, the Project Manager at SIM & the S3D Centre. Now that we've got an online home you'll be able to hear more about Sandra and the rest of the team at SIM, but let me say that Sandra a one-woman case study in the importance of awesome project management. You can have a fantastic design and development team (and we did!) but unless you have someone pulling all the pieces together it can just never quite happen. Sandra really jumped in and made things happen, both at the big picture level (so, how many sites do we need, exactly?) and then right down to the painful details (what is that comma doing there?) I'm thrilled that we have our very own living example of Sandra's capacity to make complex projects come to fruition...a talent that will continue to benefit so many other projects at SIM.
