Dock Arts - Custom CMS system built in in PHP

Dock Arts was a student art group based out of Edinburgh College of Art. Using arts council funding Jess Bentley (founder) approached me with the brief of using a site that allowed members to easily build portfolios, post news articles and showcase project work. I created the site using the CMS system as the flat file structure allowed users to easily rollback specific pages using the Git version control system if needed and to upload large amount of photos directly into an easy to navigate folder structure that would build profiles. A lot of work went into making the site design minimal and clean in order to focus on the art content of the site. A number of custom features were implemented such as the ability to tag a news article written about an artist which would then result in it pulling the mentioned artists work/profile into the sidebar. Sadly the site did not receive funding to continue another year but as artists still regularly reference the site I have kept an archive version of the site here: #webdesign #development #getkirby #flatfileCMS
