Drupalcon Boston 2008 - Studio Module http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/taxonomy/term/44/0 en V to the Tenth web site http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/showcase/v-tenth-web-site <p>The <a href="http://v10.vday.org">V10 site</a> was designed to encompass every aspect of the tenth anniversary year for V-Day, a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. Culminating in a large celebration in New Orleans, the site allows the visitor to experience a snapshot of what <a href="http://www.vday.org">VDay</a> has grown into.</p> <p>The site includes profiles of many of the movement&#8217;s activists, including Jane Fonda and Kerry Washington, an interactive timeline of V-Day&#8217;s history, a news room, and even a ride board to go to the celebration.</p> <p>The activist profiles required the integration of numerous clips into video galleries which in turn were integrated with text profiles on the various activists &#8212; this presented a daunting technical challenge with integrating video, flash, and the content management system.</p> <p>In spite of its scope, the V10 web site was developed in three months with a limited budget using Drupal, an open-source content management system.</p> <p><strong>About V-Day</strong><br /> V-Day is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM) and sexual slavery.</p> <p>Through V-Day campaigns, local volunteers and college students produce annual benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups within their own communities. In 2006, over 2700 V-Day benefit events took place by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls.</p> <p>The site was developed by Studio:Module of Miami, FL<br /> <a href="http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/user/170">Claudio Luis Vera</a>, creative director<br /> Alisha Haydn Vera, designer<br /> Richard Roth, developer<br /> Felix Arteaga, developer</p> <p>The team at V-Day included<br /> Amy Squires, client lead and webmaster<br /> Susan Celia Swan, public relations<br /> Kate Fisher<br /> Madeleine Gavin<br /> and many others at VDay</p> <p>The ({}) branding for the V to the Tenth event was handled by TBWA Chiat/Day of Los Angeles</p> http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/showcase/v-tenth-web-site#comments Activism advocacy feminism international non-profit Studio Module violence against women Tue, 12 Feb 2008 00:24:50 +0000 modulist 928 at http://boston2008.drupalcon.org
