Happy 8 years - A gift to our viewers!
ArchiTel has been on air for eight years!
Our CEO Ron Brown, first began this as an online broadcasting experiment… after seeing over 30,000 views a month, he is deeply moved by the high interest and wants to continue providing you with more original & in-depth videos of local and international architecture. So, it is finally time we take it to the next level. Our team has spent almost half a year redeveloping our web presence and… it is time for you all to see it.
What do you think of our landing page when you arrived on our new site?
We wanted something fresh, clean and uncluttered. We gave a contemporary revamp of the old site’s grey and white scheme by replacing it with a white background and black text for a classic and modern look. We have kept the seamless unlimited scrolling of our video page and the top link tabs from our old site for some familiarity and continued functionality.
Instead of the wide text alignment of our previous site, we have designed it to have a simple two or three grid layout to allow ease of skimming and reading. The font is changed to ‘Futura’ - it gives a modern twist, a blend of round edges and sturdy lines to create a more legible graphic. This helps conveys our mission to look forward to the future and to continue to create relevant and professional videos in the architectural industry.
The inclusion of both ‘short-form’ and ‘long-form’ content. We will now provide two archives of different lengths of videos for your perusal.
And LASTLY... we have added full length Australian feature films for your perusal. Some of our films you can delve into are Harry Seidler's Modernist, Spirit of Place & Getting Frank Gehry.
OUR NEW PPV service:
Here, you get access to all the high-quality feature films. There is no subscription option. You can have the option to buy or rent it. You get the convenience to freely download it and watch it for up to 72 hours!
We will continue to provide rich content at no charge and no ads. We would like to thank all our sponsors who helped us last year and we hope our partnerships continues in the long run.
We want our loyal viewers to continue watching with us and we want our audience to grow! Whether you are a student, practicing architect, designer or property developer in Melbourne, Australia or from across the world - please invite all your friends and architecture lovers to our channel!
Keep an eye out for our plans this year, we are doing interviews of fire-related buildings and indigenous architecture. Our goals are to accomplish over 200 videos and to blog more about news, updates and musings about the architectural landscape.
