St. Clair County
When we approached our first meeting with St. Clair County, we knew that this wasn't going to be some political fluff. The officers of St. Clair County had real goals in mind to increase communication to the public, and showcase the beauty of the county for tourism and businesses. It was evident first meeting that there was plenty of work to be done.
To develop a web page as a communication tool, we look at several different aspects of a site ranging from what needs to be communicated to how patrons are going to reach the information. In the web development industry, it is at this point a well known fact a majority of people looking at a web page are looking at a smaller screen. Many web pages fit inside the screen, but it isn't enough to fit, it needs to have a well thought out user interface. The infromation people are looking for need to be there when you open the door. We developed the St. Clair County web presence to highlight the core of the St. Clair County demands. Announcements, calendar events, and tourism to name a few. All components of the desktop web site are available via the mobile site, and developed in using the same intuitive interface.
As part of the solution, we spent countless hours exploring the countryside of St. Clair County to develop good media and take in some fresh country air. Partly because it was business, and partly because it was our old stompin' grounds. We traveled places we probably shouldn't have gone, and some we likely won't forget. We grabbed as much media to highlight the county, and build in an easy interface to update and maintain media on the site. In the end, we all walked away from those country roads remembering that we love what we do.
