    Screenshot of's new homepage

    INM is excited to announce the launch of a new website for Montreal-based architecture firm, Fournier Gersovitz Moss Drolet et Associés Architectes (FGMDA). The new site reflects a more modern online presence and highlights photos of some of their most striking work. The site showcases what makes FGMDA unique, mainly its expertise and its people. It also features a robust project gallery that allows visitors to drill down by expertise, building type, services and region.

    INM, Bertuch, and FGMDA worked together on the site. INM defined the client needs, mapped out the information architecture, built the wireframes and integrated the design into the WordPress back-end. Local graphic design firm Bertuch designed the site’s look and feel, and FGMDA came up with the new content for the site and did most of the migration themselves. The WordPress back–end makes it easy for FGMDA staff to modify and update content regularly.

    It’s Our Birthday

    April 26, 2013 10:53 AM
    Birthday Cake

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been 24 years since we’ve opened our doors. Over this time, we’ve grown and evolved with the market and we’ve worked on some amazing projects. Back in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s we produced some of the most popular technologies for embedding PDFs and adding databases to CD-ROMs. Thousands of applications were built with our software at the core.

     As the world evolved and projects moved online, we were at the forefront of rich Internet technology working on projects like interactive dashboards, interactive ecommerce platforms, online libraries, and more.

     We’re currently working with companies that want to transform their multi-channel customer experience while improving organizational efficiencies. All our projects today blend awesome user experiences with solid business objectives and well-architected technology.

     Here’s to another 24 years! I wonder what we’ll be building then?
