a perfect fit

Kansas City Arts Partners Site Design

In 2002, Firefly Studio LLC was selected by Kansas City Young Audiences (KCYA) to design and program their first Web site for Kansas City Arts Partners, kcya.org/ artspartners. We had many ideas for the site, including the practical option of adapting the work we'd already developed for KCYA to suit this new purpose.
