New website design for the Eden Killer Whale Museum

EKWMThe Eden Killer Whale Museum was looking to update their website recently and chose Excell for the design and website development. Working closely with Bob at the museum, we created a list of needs the new site would have. Given the extensive pages that had been developed over many years of operating the previous site, there was a substantial amount of information that needed updating. The previous site was HTML based and therefor difficult to easily update for the museum staff.

We moved the new site over to a WordPress based system which enables non-tech-savvy users to add, edit and update information on their site quickly and easily without having to know a single line of code. In addition to the website platform, we created a custom WordPress theme specifically for the museum. This enables the look and feel of the site to remain consistent while the supporting staff members can focus on adding new content over time. Because the museum manages an extensive library and research facility we made it easier for viewers and the museum staff to support the requests that come in for research material.

Over the years, the Killer Whale Museum has made many improvements and updates to their facility and exhibits. We supplied location photography for the museum that was used on the website as well as several print projects we supplied for them. The new photography fit well with the new and updated design. Information and navigation was also greatly enhanced so the most important info has a prominent and static place on the site and the numerous site pages are easy to navigate. In addition to this, we coded a responsive mode for their theme that accommodates screen sizes of all kinds. The code was extremely streamlined to help reduce the bandwidth requirements of mobile devices.

Overall, the Eden Killer Whale Museum was very happy with the end result. We were happy to help them launch their new site and it’s already getting quite the traction!
