Over eleven days, Melbourne Design Week presents emerging and established designers to address the theme in an array of talks, tours, workshops, exhibitions and launches across Melbourne and Victoria. Through this, it celebrates the diversity of the Australian design and architectural sector offering both industry professionals and design enthusiasts the opportunity to engage with individuals, institutions and practices at the vanguard of design world-wide.
This year we built a special portal to allow participants to manage their own listings. Implemented as a custom Wordpress plugin, this portal was built with Vue to create a beautiful and intuitive interface for managing events and images.
To handle the intense traffic, we worked closely with the hosting company (Micron21) fine-tuning the LiteSpeed server, as well as optimising the Wordpress installation.
