Oshawa had a lot of cool things going on, but no alternative weekly to tie them all together and get the word out.
In February 2012 I launched an online publication covering arts, culture, events and reviews of cool things going on in Durham Region.
I design, art direct and edit this publication and recruited around 30 volunteer writers, illustrators, photographers and designers from Bowmanville to Brock. My husband built the first site in Joomla, but I relaunched it myself in 2014 using WordPress for a more mobile-friendly design.
With more than 10,000 page views each month at peak performance and a growing roster of skilled contributors, this little project is turning into something big.
Stay tuned for the encore of OshaWhat in fall 2014.
