Planning Updates: New Organizers, Logo, Site Tweaks & Sponsors

Hi everyone!

We’ve made quite a bit of progress since our last update.

New Organizers

Jordan Quintal has joined us to spearhead the accessibility initiative for WordCamp Toronto 2014. Jordan is a longtime member of the Toronto WordPress Group, a WordCamp Toronto presenter, and returning sponsor.

Dejan Markovic will be handling volunteer coordination this year. Dejan is an experienced WordPress developer and event organizer with the Toronto WordPress Group. (If you’re interested in volunteering, please sign up!)

WordCamp Toronto 2014 Logo

We’re excited to unveil the official logo for WordCamp Toronto 2014:

This was a joint effort between Kobayashi Online and Zeitguys Inc.

Site Tweaks

We’ve made some adjustments to the site over the last few days. Namely:

  • Switched from WordCamp Base theme to Twenty Thirteen.
  • Changed font for greater readability (hopefully!)
  • Added genericons to links that open new tabs or windows.
  • Replaced the header photo with the beautiful shot by Anton Bielousov. We’re also using it on Facebook and Twitter.

We made these changes in hopes that it would improve our site accessibility and usability. If you run into anything that’s causing a problem, please drop a comment below. 🙂

More Sponsors!

We’ve added a bunch of new sponsors – just take a look at the sidebar! We’ll be rolling out the spotlight posts and formal announcements over the next 8+ weeks in the leadup to WordCamp Toronto.

Interested in sponsoring? We’re still accepting applications.
