Toronto Musicians' Association
Sometime in the early 2000's, I made a connection with a board member of the TMA, as she needed some help on a custom Excel sheet for generating price bids for performances (apparently, in Toronto, all union musicians have set wage scales governing how much you get paid...it's actually quite interesting). She ended up asking me if I'd be interested in doing some work on their website, so of course I said "Sure!".
While the structure is good, the color choices, particularly the background, were always...suspect...in my eyes. This was one of those cases where the client was receiving feedback from several people and she attempted to combine all the feedback, which worked well with the sole exception of that background, which was provided to me and was supposed to give a "nightclub feel". I'm not sure about that.
Their site, since then, has undergone a complete redesign (go figure).
