Hop Studios was very excited today to hear that we have been short-listed to build the Chicago Artists Resource website for the Chicago Dept. of Cultural Affairs.
The project would be a co-operative effort between the brilliant (yes, I’m flattering them) folks at Bryght, and us. Bryght is a developer of software solutions on top of the Drupal content management system.
One thing that’s been very interesting is that the 30-40 competing companies all joined a Yahoo Group set up for the RFP process, and were able to read questions and answers each asked about the project. It made for a very transparent and efficient information exchange that let all the respondents see the scope of all issues that we would be facing.
I think that bodes well for the project itself—I would anticipate a lot of participation and input from the community the project is meant to service.
We’re heading to Chicago next week for an in-person meeting. Wish us luck!
