Grand Marais Art Colony Website

Art Colony


We implemented a custom class and event registration system built on The Events Calendar, Events Tickets Plus and WooCommerce. We then connected this system to Salesforce, where we created custom object types and reports tailored specifically to the client's needs. Customers are also tagged in MailChimp with custom tags specific to their shopping activity.

project OVERVIEW

We collaborated with Šek Design Studio to update Grand Marais Art Colony's website design, registration system, and CRM system. We received a homepage design, and carried through branding to the rest of the site.

More feature-specific information coming soon on this project.


We were looking to address a set of challenges, specifically around the user experience with our current website and registration platform. The Grenwoods worked with us through several stages to figure out how to offer a deposit and final payment system for our classes, streamline website navigation and increase accessibility, and connect our membership, registration, and customer management systems. To say the least, it was a gigantic overhaul and clean up.

The Grenwoods worked hard to become fluent in our mission and resources. They were available, prompt, and tremendous problem solvers. I would highly recommend them to anyone with web and IT systems development needs.

I’ve worked with Paul and Maria Grenwood over the past 3 1/2 years and we partnered to build a handful of websites during that time. These sites ranged from smaller 5 page websites to much larger, more complex, sites that had needs for systems integrations and custom functionality.

No matter the size, the Grenwoods consistently communicated effectively and proactively brought forward impactful improvement ideas. Their work continually focuses on the goals of the business all while providing an efficient user experience.

I can’t speak of them highly enough and strongly recommend them for your next website build.
