Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens

Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens’ mission is to provide authentic Japanese cultural experiences that entertain, educate and inspire. Since opening in 1977, Morikami has been a center for Japanese arts and culture in South Florida. With rotating exhibitions, tea ceremonies performed monthly in the Seishin-an tea house, educational outreach programs with local schools and organizations, and Japanese traditional festivals celebrated for the public several times a year, Morikami strives to spread appreciation for the living culture of Japan.

The Morikami project was accompanied by a number of unique needs, such as customizing sales reports to conform to very exacting data input standards with their current CRM, a dynamic online store with more than 200 products, a complex dynamic pricing function that provides special pricing for members across targeted store products/categories, a wide array of non-ticketed class and workshops, an extensive online exhibit archive, and much, much more.

EveryAction.com Selects Morikami Design As Top 100 Nonprofit Websites

What a treat to see Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens’ website was selected as one of EveryAction.com’s Top 100 nonprofit websites. A creative firm that specializes in nonprofits, EveryAction selected Morikami’s website alongside groups with substantially larger budgets which included the Word Wildlife Fund, Gates Foundation, Red Cross, NPR, MoMA, American Cancer Society, Planned Parenthood, and Change Org. As such, it’s a real thrill to see Morikami’s Venture Platform designed and powered website be included in the All Around Champs division.

Jack of all trades, master of – well, all of them. These sites might not have the innovative features of the creatives, but they boast design prowess, responsiveness, and just about everything else you need for a nonprofit site that truly rocks.

[Morikami.org features a] nice clean design, responsive layout, and cool image slider. Extra points for the (very hip) flat social media buttons. Flat is where it’s at.
