Through exhibitions, installations, symposia, lectures and workshops, the Asia Pacific Architecture Forum will explore the ways new world cities are responding to the opportunities and challenges of the Asian century.”

Stretched Thin

When Architecture Media approached us to update the visuals on their existing Asia Pacific Architecture Forum website, we took the opportunity to recommend a complete overhaul of their branding and proposed a CMS change which would enable their content managers to more easily update the site. While time and budget restraints made for a few late nights, the resulting branding and website easily grow with each corresponding forum.

Building Blocks

The first part of the process was to input all of the existing 2016 APAF content in to a fresh Craft CMS installation so we could easily see how the information related. Once this was done, the design process for both the branding and the new website began in tandem. The new website has been a resounding success for the Forum, with significantly increased numbers in traffic and ticket purchases and overwhelming interest from potential partners for the 2018 program.


The next update of the APAF and Design Speaks sites will be combining them into one Craft 3 multi-site install. Due to the number of events, speakers and partners that are shared between the two, this seemed like a perfect use-case for the new functionality.
