Sundalah is a small business, based in Townsville, Queensland. Sundalah offers a variety of programs for all ages including community workshops and events to inspire, educate, motivate and unite people through choices in whole health and self-study.

In a joint venture between Sundalah and LMM Design Envision, the Sundalah CommUNITY Magazine was created as a yearly publication to connect the local community and beyond, by showcasing the many wonderful wellness offerings available in the Townsville region.

To support and promotion this publication, the Sundalah CommUNITY Magazine Website was developed.

The website displays previous articles in the easy to find and read manner. Potential advertisers can purchase advertising space. This process is also easy to find and navigate, which sometimes is an issue with sites of this type. Those who are inspired to Submit an Article can also do so through the site.

The website has been developed using the Wordpress Content Management System (CMS). Extra security and SEO plugins have been utilised to keep the site secure, but easy to find on a browser.

Articles and Advertising

The Articles page displays those from the magazine's previous iteration, the Sundalah Community Mini-Mag. These can easily be added using the CMS. The intro displays a carousel of magazine covers over the years.

Advertising options are shown in a visual manner, so that potential advertisers can easily understand the dimensions of the space and relative sizing (on desktop and larger tablets). E-commerce solutions needed to be incorporated, with PayPal and Direct Deposit options.
