We were happy to be able to bring Kellie’s vision to life with a theme that is as fun and creative as she is.

Their website, last redesigned in the 1990s, was in need of an overhaul and they decided that WordPress would be just what they needed in order to inform members, share information, and keep their community up to date.

Thera Wise is a Vancouver-based skin care and Canadian health sciences company that first started their website in 2003. In 2011, it was time for a refresh and they chose WordPress as their new platform. Supplying their own design, sixty4media transferred years of data and information over to WordPress and created a theme based on their supplied imaging. The result is a very robust, custom showcase for their products.
CKNW Orphans’ Fund
The CKNW Orphans’ Fund is a fantastic non-profit organization based in Vancouver. They wanted to redesign their current WordPress website to better showcase their news, events, sponsors, and more. Our designer came up with a modern yet down-to-earth feel for the site and we enjoyed creating something that the organization can enjoy. The new theme was launched right before their annual Pledge Day which was their most successful to date. sixty4media was very proud to assist this great local cause’s online efforts.
The organizers of the brand new Surrey International World Music Marathon came to sixty4media to build a WordPress site for their race information and registration. Armed with their own design, we built the theme from the ground-up in anticipation of this exciting event happening in September 2012.
The Rize Blog
The Rize development contacted sixty4media in order to create a blog where they could provide information, talk to locals, and host discussions about housing in Vancouver.

Island Living by Rick Gustavson
Rick Gustavson is a real estate agent with a specialty in island living off the coast of British Columbia. While he already had a robust company website, he wanted to start up a blog to document more about the coastal lifestyle.
His main website was not built on WordPress but we were able to seamlessly install WordPress at http://rickgustavson.com/blog/. This allowed Rick to treat the blog as a separate entity while maintaining his website’s address and branding. To keep the cost down, we personalized an existing WordPress theme for Rick and did not provide a custom design. We also consulted with Rick on how to integrate social networks into the site and vice versa. He can now blog tips and information, post photos to Flickr, and publish to Facebook and Twitter while maintaining a home base on his Island Living Blog.
HP Officejet Challenge
Sprouter and HP teamed up to run a blogging challenge for small businesses who all tried out the HP Officejet printer. They were looking for an easy-to-use microsite for the competition and WordPress was a natural fit. Multiple authors, voting platform, and a clean layout. We worked with our designer to put together a site that could be updated weekly, as new posts were added, and that could showcase the contributed posts. Researching and using the right plugins was key for this project, as well as putting together a site that was simple enough to navigate for each of the four weeks of competition. sixty4media provided end-to-end service and maintenance for this project from the design phase to updating the weekly posts from participants.
Celebrate Vancouver 125
The City of Vancouver selected sixty4media to build a newsroom and events microsite for its 125th anniversary celebrations, and we couldn’t have been more honoured. With a quick deadline (with major press conference and launch party) looming, we were able to work diligently with the City and our designer to launch on time. The design was clean, functional, and incorporated the 125th anniversary branding while living up to the City’s web guidelines. As we have done in the past with newsrooms, this theme was built with widgets (so that the City’s team could update with ease) and a basic calendar plugin was added for that extra level of organization leading up to some major city events.
War Child Challenge
War Child launched a blogging challenge in the fall of 2010 that saw youth from across Canada complete four social media challenges. For this, they needed a campaign site separate from their main War Child website and sixty4media was brought in to develop a WordPress microsite. We were able to create a WordPress theme based on the current War Child website (which is not in WordPress) and add blogging elements such as the voting system they used to determine their challenge winner. It was great to work on this project that will have such an impact. The challenge winner is now on his way to Ethiopia to blog about War Child’s programs.
sixty4media was responsible for the design and development of this educational research portal. The site we built features essays contributed by a rotating roster of authors. The focus was to showcase the essays and provide the best information about each author throughout the site for Policy Matters. Every project we complete is different and it was great to work closely with the client to ensure the multi-author design was a success.
sixty4media played a role in building the new website for Real Weddings magazine. We were hired by our favourite designer to build the structure of the magazine’s site using WordPress. Using the mockups provided, we created the framework and functions for the site including featured wedding galleries, a blog, and custom pages for various other categories of content that the magazine provides. It was a very robust website to build and this wouldn’t have been completed without a full team effort, which we were excited to be a part of.
Outrider is a premiere Canadian Search Engine Marketing firm that was looking for an updated theme for their current WordPress website. The idea was to keep the theme light, clean, and focus on their selection of services.

It was a joy to see the Outrider site come together with a new look and feel.

Waterfront Toronto v2
Waterfront Toronto recently redesigned their main website and with it came a request to re-theme their newsroom. We were happy to take on the task of doing another theme, building upon the existing WordPress infrastructure that sixty4media initially setup. We matched the client’s design elements that were being added to their new main website and left room to add in their floating menu at the top of the site in order to maintain consistency. The site has become a hub for those looking for information from the Waterfront Toronto Newsroom as well as photos and videos to share using social media.
The Coca-Cola Canada Newsroom
Coca-Cola is an official sponsor of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games torch run and as such, they were in need of a social media newsroom. The goal of the newsroom, built on WordPress, is to bring together images, videos, news releases and updates about the run in a central and branded location. We were able to provide a design, theme, and two full sites (in French and English) using WordPress. It was a real treat to work on this project as we watch the countdown to the Games.
Premiere Animal Health
Pfizer’s Premiere Animal Health division was looking for a site that could be accessed by the public as well as accommodate a private login area for employees. With a robust online newsroom, employees can login to view specific company materials, news items, frequently asked questions, and discussions about their day-to-day. Built with WordPress, this custom design and theme features its own login screens, the private “employees only” area, along with a French version of the site and theme as well. This was one of sixty4media’s first French theme builds and we were very pleased with the outcome.
Waterfront Toronto oversees many developments which are changing and evolving the Toronto landscape. Their beautiful projects, plans, and initiatives needed an online social media newsroom to being engaging residents and the public. Powered by WordPress, this custom design and theme fits snugly into their main website and provides images, video, and updates on the go. Residents can add their own images to the Waterfront Toronto Flickr group, browse upcoming project videos, and get the latest news on developments via the social media newsroom.
The Churchill Society
The Churchill Society came to us with a static website that contained dozens of pages coded in HTML. They wanted to implement a content management system that would be easy to update and still provide information about the group’s many events. The original website contained pages and articles dating back almost 10 years so it was important to preserve the archives while also creating a dynamic news section and easy-to-follow pagination. WordPress was a natural option for this project and sixty4media picked an existing theme for this group to fully customized it to suit their needs. The result is a smooth and easy to follow website that contains all of the Churchill Society’s notes on education and event information while the news page is populated by blog posts.
Online Degree Finder
With OnlineDegreeFinder.com we took the crisp design supplied by our client and developed it from scratch into a WordPress site. We used the platform as a CMS (content management system) to optimize the endless functions of WordPress throughout the entire site. The client needed a way for content and information to flow throughout the site and also wanted a scalable solution for their growing database and resources. We filled this site with easy-to-manage widgets which allow for data to be edited with ease from the user-friendly dashboard. It was great to work with the client on this truly custom project.
EducationGrant.com is not your typical WordPress site. Working with a design by the client, we created this custom WordPress theme on multiple levels to showcase the abundance of information the site contains. Custom and widgeted sidebars, forms, and smooth navigation allow the client to focus on their content while enhancing their users’ experience. EducationGrant.com uses the platform as a complete content management system, and also still contains a blog for news and updates.
TrainHarder‘s goal is to provide a one stop resource for outdoor enthusiasts to get news and information for “both serious and recreational endurance athletes in British Columbia. This site is all about training… harder of course.”
Being an existing (yet outdated) WordPress blog, the goal for this project was to redesign the overall look of the site and create a better layout for the content. After a consultation to lay out some guidelines, the overall look was left up to us. The end result was a cleaner layout, tricked out with the latest plugins and SEO enhancements that ultimately restored our client’s blogging enthusiasm.

sixty4media was contacted specifically to help turn their hand-coded blog into a WordPress site. This involved creating a custom theme that would slide seamlessly into the existing site architecture and even match its current design.
Knox Presbyterian Church of New Westminster, B.C.
Knox Presbyterian Church knew that they wanted a website, but they weren’t sure where to start. The fact that they did not currently own a website meant this was a true from the ground up project that had one intention: grow the community, on and offline.
This is a comprehensible Drupal site with custom content forms designed to make adding information an easy task for church staff. Using some module magic, submission forms for different types of content were created with detailed instructions of how to post information to the site. We offered this one-step training to enable the current staff and make it simple for newcomers to produce content as well.
No Boundaries.org is an around the world travelogue of Andy Stoll. He originally set out for his worldwide trip with the idea of having a blog to document the experience. Being unhappy with its initial state and design during the first leg of the adventure he contacted sixty4media to create a website that worked as a blog but didn’t look like one in the traditional sense. Remotely from China the redesign of his WordPress site was done entirely through email. Somewhere around Kazakhstan Andy was presented with his ideal design, as we made his vision for NoBoundaries.org a reality.
