StudioDish has been an exciting large-scale project that has crossed over multiple platforms that we have been intimately involved in almost every aspect of — at least from the design, development, and deployment side. While primarily built-in WordPress Mu, the community integrates KickApps, premium WordPress marketplace customizations, and a third-party store-locator app called Xtreme Locator, as well as many bleeding edge modifications from the WordPress Mu development community.
StudioDish is a blogging community for potters, craftspeople and artisans to showcase, sell, and talk about their work. Erin has a background in pottery, so this was a great opportunity to bring in some of our multidisciplinary backgrounds and apply them to web design.
For StudioDish, we built a WordPress theme for the main site, a variation for the signature blog, Main Dish, a free variation and a marketplace variation for artists who wanted to offer a shop to sell their art. We also designed another customized marketplace theme for PicassoZ Art Cafe, and other premier subscribers.
This has been a challenging and rewarding project that we’ve had a lot of fun with, and it has been a real treat to keep up on exciting new development in the WordPress Mu community.
