A Better Israel Through Art: AICF
Designing a site for a company that is artistically focused is not an easy challenge. The American Israel Cultural Foundation (AICF) is a foundation that provides scholarships to Israelís finest artists. Since 1939, AICF has been instrumental in the development of Israel's largest cultural institutions and finest artists. AICF has distributed over $100 million and over $6.5 million in the past five-years in scholarships to Israeli students.
On the design and technology front of the AICF site, we have built a very comprehensive and flexible content management system (CMS). The CMS allows the AICF staff to create new sections and pages, plus pick a customized layout specifically for that page. From the unique artists profile pages, to the easy-on-the-eye calendar section Ė AICF's web site has it all.
In fact, we are going to be launching a Hebrew version of the site, which uses the same custom CMS package as the English site. Plus there will be a comprehensive backend application that helps automate the workflow involved in the scholarship system, which ties the Israeli office with the New York City based American office.
