Project Details

Electric Playground was sub contracted by Waterwerks Communications to bring their design concept to life. Let’s Talk Science was looking for a full refresh on two of their web properties and hired Waterwerks as their consulting and design agency. We had already co-produced several projects for Waterwerks and they knew we were a great fit as their technical partner.

Waterwerks delivered the design files and website scope to us and through a year of heavy collaboration, the second largest site we’ve built was born.

This project is jammed packed with custom features, starting with the HTML5 animation feature on the homepage.

The site features include customized Joomla article layouts, news and events listings, integrated social media features, a directory of interactive activities for students to try, as well as a directory of all local outreach sites across Canada via the network of microsites.

This project shows the full potential of Joomla as an enterprise content management system.
