New web site 'Art of Sedas'

I am glad to annouce the release of a new web site for my personal artistic journey - ‘The Art of Sedas’.

After a decade of ‘faithfull’ service, the ‘old’ ‘HTML only’ site had become completely ‘outdated’ - both in terms of ‘design’ as in underlying ‘technology’.

Furthermore it required quite some efforts to add new ‘content’ and to ‘maintain’ any existing one.

Therefore it was time to replace the old site with a content managed driven site using the great CMS system ‘Umbraco’.

Umbraco is not only a great ‘CMS’ system for ‘developers’ but it also contains a great community which deliver outstanding ‘packages’ that contain ‘functionality out of the box’. One such great package is the ‘Umazel Starter Kit’ by ‘DotSee’ which provides a great ‘starting place’ to set up a web site like this one.

The new web site can be seen at ‘’.

The aim was to actualise the existing, older, desktop-oriented site and make it tablet and mobile friendly and more slick in terms of feeling & design while trying to maintain the same ‘feeling’.

The site has been designed and programmed by us using the excellent content management system Umbraco.

Umbraco is a Microsoft .NET opensource CMS which gives you complete freedom in the front-end development inlcuding templating, document types management, scripting, etc … and it includes a powerfull backend management tool for the actual content creation & management by end-users.
