Today Linkhouse Media launched www.thebraproject.com. theBraProject is a collection of Art-bras designed by amateur artists for one purpose; to inspire, inform and join people together in the fight against breast cancer. theBraProject is part of a campaign called Support The Girls which was created by the West Parry Sound Health Centre Foundation to raise awareness of the importance of early screening and money for a new digital mammography machine to service the community of Parry Sound.
The WPSHCF’s Executive Director, Lynne Atkinson had a fantastic and very specific vision for the design of the website for this campaign. The site also had to match the current branding of the campaign. Linkhouse Media was able to deliver a product that meets those needs plus added a unique look and feel. The website features a collection of Art-bras that can be uploaded by local artists and people from around the world, along with their story that makes the artwork truly unique. The artwork is displayed along a clothesline that will stretch as far as creativity and imagination will take it. Users can also filter designs by region using an interactive Google map. New artwork, once published is automatically posted to theBraProject on Twitter.
You can feel free to add your own design to the line or simply follow along on twitter with the new bra updates at http://twitter.com/thebraproject

This is an exciting post for us at Linkhouse Media. This week we very quietly went live with the new Bobby Orr Hall of Fame website. The soft launch took place on Monday and we will be following up later this month with the e-Store opening. Previously, a customer could place an order on the e-store but the BOHF staff would call the customer to process payment information. Now with the new site, online purchases will be processed from start to finish.
The Bobby Orr Hall of Fame is an interactive hockey museum with a wide variety of photos, memorabilia and artifacts about Bobby Orr, who was born in Parry Sound. Exhibits include Orr’s NHL rings, a number of his trophies and awards, some of the jerseys he played in, a pictorial history of his career and a number of interactive games and activities related to hockey. The Bobby Orr Hall of Fame also hosts exhibits about other exceptional athletes with ties to Parry Sound.
This project was a part of the redesign of the Charles W. Stockey Centre for the Performing Arts website, commissioned by the Town of Parry Sound. The proposal put forth an option to quote on one or both phases of the project. The Bobby Orr Hall of Fame site is phase two and is now complete. The design incorporates a custom content management system (CMS) built specifically to suite the needs of the Stockey Centre and BOHF. Some site features include a dynamic XML sitemap, dynamic Inductee Corner, media uploads and management, extensive Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Search Engine Friendly URLS, a custom artistic design, secure SSL e-store (cheers to Ian Holmes) and Dynamic Facebook and Twitter Integration.
