We understand web design for cities and governments

We know 'em, we love 'em

Municipalities and governments face a lot of unique challenges in their web communications:

  • Limited time, resources, and capacity
  • Unpredictable budget cycles
  • Challenging procurement processes
  • High visibility
  • Constant need to demonstrate value
  • Pressure to maintain cost effectiveness
  • Stringent regulatory requirements (especially for accessibility)
  • Huge scope of services
  • Constant public review and feedback
  • High expectations from constituents

We get results for city websites

It's all about the outcomes

We understand your challenges through our years of working with the municipal sector. We know how to make the most of your budget to deliver the results you need:

  • The City of Surrey saw a 344% increase in web traffic after we redesigned Surrey.ca in 2009. Then in 2013, mobile traffic increased 106% and tablet traffic went up 80% when we relaunched a responsive web design version of Surrey.ca.
  • We reduced the amount of content on the City of Edmonton website from 11,000 pages to 5,000 pages. This reduces their total cost of ownership, and saves money in maintenance and review costs.
  • We helped define the City of Surrey’s web governance. We helped create the web team that now manages their online communications – right down to writing job descriptions, consulting on how to fit a web team into their organizational chart, and conducting interviews.
  • Many cities have to manage program and class registration. We helped City of Edmonton and City of Surrey residents find and register for City programs, using web and iPhone applications built on Active Network’s Class application. Learn more about our work with Class software on our blog.
