Barrie Public Library

Barrie Public Library

BACKGROUND

The Barrie Public Library is one of the busiest spots in the city, with over 3000 people a day coming through their doors. Patrons visit them to check out leisure reading materials, participate in programs, use library services for help with homework, and more!

At the heart of every great city is a great library. The place to learn, meet others, study with and be inspired. Barrie’s library website was in a state of “funk” for many years and with the increased need to serve our ever-increasing digital culture, it was time to catch up! Throughout a series of gatherings and an awesome team effort, we developed a great tool for them.

WEB  DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

BACKGROUND

Over the past eight years, Rhubarb Media has become the go-to studio for design and web services for arts and culture organizations and OMAH continues that trend. We consulted with them to create a new and improved content managed site (DRUPAL) designed to be highly visual, interactive and responsive.

Lake Simcoe Regional Airport

Lake Simcoe Regional Airport

Taking an airport to new heights

Background

The Lake Simcoe Regional Airport is one of the newest and best positioned regional airport facilities in Canada. Located in one of the fastest growing regions of Ontario directly serving a population base of over 450,000, the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport serves the County of Simcoe including the municipalities of Barrie and the Township of Oro-Medonte. The Airport offers these users a convenient location in close proximity to both the Greater Toronto Area as well as pristine Central Ontario Cottage Country. With its modern airport facilities and 6,001 ft runway, the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport is able to serve a wide variety of aircraft ranging from small recreational and flight training aircraft to larger corporate, regional and commercial aircraft.

How we helped:

In 2007 we met with Mike Drumm from Lake Simcoe Regional Airport to begin one of our long-standing client relationships. We created a new logo and custom CMS website built in Adobe Flash. (We did say 2007!) In 2012 we re-launched a new design, fresh content and refocused on new opportunities at the airport. Mike loves the new CMS, built on one of our favourite platforms, DRUPAL.

Things we worked on:

  • Branding
  • Web
  • Drupal
  • Design

The Lake Simcoe Regional Airport through its parent, the City of Barrie, undertook to completely re-brand the regional airport’s image with a new corporate logo and web site as the core projects. The diverse nature and fast pace of the aviation business demanded a product that would define the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport as contender in the global market – Rhubarb Media was able to provide such a product. Not only did the creative and dynamic team at Rhubarb deliver a professional image of the airport, but were able to do so with the initial parameters evolving into a larger product. I would highly recommend the services of this group.

Expressing our love for art and city

Client: Maclaren Art

The MacLaren Art Centre is the regional public art gallery serving the residents of Barrie, the County of Simcoe and the surrounding area. It has a permanent collection of 26,600 works of art held in trust for the public and presents a year-round programme of world-class exhibitions, public art projects, education activities and special events.

The MacLaren is housed in an award-winning building in downtown Barrie. The complex includes multiple galleries, an education centre, a sculpture courtyard, café, gift shop and framing department. As a cornerstone of culture for Barrie, the MacLaren is a visual arts centre that adds to the social, intellectual, creative and economic fabric of this community; it is a central meeting place, a destination for visitors from across the province, and a catalyst for downtown revitalization contributing to the success and vitality of this city.

How we helped: The Maclaren Art Centre was on a web platform that didn’t serve their needs. Little attention was paid to imagery and events. In 2009 we met with Caroline, the director. Working with a new marketing campaign “Start Thinking Art” we redesigned and developed a website with the ability for staff to easily manage content and collect payment online. We also recommended and designed a MailChimp template for e-communications. In 2012 a revitalization project helped to reach even more of the community with a greater focus on exhibitions, events and the addition of MacLarenArtOnline; a searchable database of their permanent collection.
