Launch of Alex Colville’s official website

It is with great pride that Tantramar Interactive Inc. announces the launch of AlexColville.ca, the first official website of Canadian artist Alex Colville. A long-time resident of Sackville and faculty member at Mount Allison University, Colville’s work is recognized internationally.

As a life-long admirer of Colville’s work, and a fellow graduate of Mount Allison, it was an honour to have been approached to take on this project, and designing a site that wouldn’t detract from it — while holding up against it — was daunting.

COMP 1631 Art Show sponsorship

Dr Laurie Ricker of the Mount Allison University Department of Mathematics and Computer Science invited Christopher Mackay of Tantramar Interactive Inc. to participate in this year’s COMP 1631 Art Show as a judge, along with Dan Vogel and Janet Crawford.

Students created artwork based on algorithms they wrote that manipulated images’ pixels, resulting in many creative and complex compositions involving chroma-key operations, transposition, colour-modification and rotation.

The event took place at Struts Gallery on Lorne Street, in Sackville, and was attended by many students, faculty and community members.

The poster for the event was designed by Tantramar Interactive Inc.

Tantramar Interactive helps Canadian Melanoma Foundation take donations

We were planning to make a donation to the Canadian Melanoma Foundation on behalf of a good friend — a two-time survivor of melanoma. What we discovered was that they didn’t have the means to accept online donations through their web site. We knew there were others who wanted to make donations on behalf of our friend, and we wanted it to be easier for people to donate.

We contacted the Foundation in Vancouver, but while they loved the idea of taking donations online, they didn’t the have time or skills in-house to make it happen.

Since we’ve helped clients with this process before, we helped guide them through the process of setting up the Canadian Melanoma Foundation as a charity on CanadaHelps.org. They were delighted!

They now are accepting donations online:

The redesigned web site, which included graphic & usability design and a completely-customized content management system that was built from the ground-up for MJM, was launched in late November of 2006. The project was completed on-time and on-budget.
