Web Redesign Proposal

Prepared by Chris McMahon

Project Overview

Project Objective

The project objective is two-fold:

  1. Improve the ability for staff to update and maintain the site
    1. The current construction of the site makes adding new pages or editing existing pages extremely difficult, much of the content is not accessible from the content management system. Many changes require the direct editing of files.
    2. The new site will allow for every portion of the site to be edited using the WordPress CMS.
  2. Use a mobile-first approach to design.
    1. While the current site is functional on smaller devices many common tasks are hidden behind an extra click or their display his hidden behind unnecessary animation. A mobile-first approach will provide quicker access to information on the site, increase page load-time, and improve search engine visibility. These same benefits will also make the site perform better across al screen sizes.

The more I get acclimated to the new design, the better I like it. It feels clean and airy, like it is breathing.
