New York, NY (PRWEB) May 24, 2012
ModelKarma, which is aiming to become the world’s largest online community and a virtual agency for both aspiring and established models, has hired web development firm theREDSpace to bring their vision to life.
Headquartered in Bedford Nova Scotia, Canada, theREDspace is an interactive development studio responsible for some of the world's leading media and entertainment sites, games and virtual worlds.
"We are excited to be working with Michael Johnston and the excellent team at theREDspace,” said ModelKarma founder and CEO Thomas Zeumer. “It was a real challenge for us to find the right team to fit our unique project. When we first met in Halifax, we immediately knew we found our guys. We look forward to establishing a long term working relationship with theREDspace."
“TheREDspace is excited to partner with ModelKarma for its global brand expansion,” said theREDspace CEO Mike Johnston. “Together, we are building a flexible, scalable web based platform aimed at supporting ModelKarma's worldwide, localized audience, while capturing the accessibility and beauty of the ModelKarma brand.”
TheREDspace has taken the lead on developing the new ModelKarma online modeling website and community that will be launched in July this year.
“We have been testing our features and functionality in a beta version of our website previously and have collected valuable data and consumer feedback,” Zeumer said. “Now that we are ready to launch our new site, it was very important for us to work with a team who would make us feel like their only client and who had a fantastic reputation.”
"I have worked with my fair share of web developers over the last five years, and working with theREDspace has been like night and day,” said ModelKarma Chief Operating Officer Roman Wunderlich. “After working with theREDspace on another project, I was just blown away by what they did for us and how fast they managed to turn around this product.”
For ModelKarma, theREDspace is building an innovative and user friendly social network and community for models. They are assisting in helping design all the website pages, assisting in establishing a sitemap and workflow, consulting on modules and features being implemented, and most importantly, coding the entire site in Drupal 7.
“What an incredible group of professionals that offer exceptional knowledge and know-how,” Wunderlich said. “Since day one, we have felt like their team are in-house and sitting with us in the ModelKarma office. They have gone above and beyond to accommodate us and our project."
