Media Architects Designs the Appearance & Function

"Many organizations want to manage all of the content on their websites. This type of site is called a content management system - or CMS."


A full CMS website design is one where the client can make their own website updates using a login. Such a website design is designed from the beginning so that pre selected areas can be updated by anyone who has a password in your organization, and that has a basic familiarity with the Internet. These website areas can include blogs, messages from the company president, project photos, databases, etc. You, the client, perform the updates in a framework and design that is created just for your business.

In addition to Media Architects own custom CMS websites, the popular CMS website structures to which we apply design, function and security features include:


Making website updates is made simple for clients by Media Architects

We create a login (or logins) whereby the client goes to a url on the Internet to access a login page, the User provides a login name and password and then proceeds to a page to edit certain or all pages of their website. The overall look, feel (brand) and functionality of the site is normally static however - altered by Media Architects as requested.

Even with a CMS website, you can ask us to perform updates on your behalf. The type of update can range from text changes to project photo gallery changes. We can edit-optimize your new project photos, for example, and then upload them via your Admin login to your website for viewing.

Is the CMS design approach comparable in cost to a non-CMS site?

Normally CMS sites cost more up front. CMS sites require more effort and time on the part of the designer. They also normally cost you more for us to administer over time, given that updates and Internet changes occur over time as a constant.

However, CMS can cost less over time if your organization requires changing the site content frequently, as would be the case cms sample imagewith a retail site (ecommerce), special event, restaurant or club site, or a site that is essentially a blog at its core. I recommend CMS for these types of sites. What you would have paid us to do, for example, you are paying your staff to do instead.

Our History!

There is no question that we learned as we went. No apologies! It was and is a lot of work to adapt to the constant changes in aesthetic sensibilities, layout standards and dynamic functions (and that's only the front end!). But it has been enjoyable all the way. From Cayuela Guitars in Spain, our first website clients, to our fascinating innumerable current crew of clients who maintain loyalty to Media Architects, we cheer the work and camaraderie and forge ahead.

2000
