When I met the Raue Center’s Operations Manager, I was already working on a web app for local events. My app needed a design; they needed a functioning admin system. Our needs blended perfectly.
Visually, I modeled the site on the theatre’s renovated interior — a mock Spanish village of clay and stucco, with burgundy furnishings below a blue star-studded ceiling. The screenshots here depict the second incarnation of the layout, the first being a more literal representation of the theatre, the third involving new hues and some widgets.
Behind the curtain was a fully custom interface that enabled the Raue’s staff to manage every detail relevant to the promotional needs of a showcase theatre. Events could have one date or four, and could be categorized multiply; tickets came at one price, two, or none. The flexibility was crucial to their operation. I spent months fine-tuning the algorithms that queried the database.
