Adams County Website Re-Design
This project was about redesigning an actual website that was in desperate need of an update. Parameters included providing a way to find information about taking a written driver’s test, locating the user’s voter precinct, finding a photo gallery of Adam’s County history, and being able to do a general search.
I studied award winning government websites to learn how the best ones work. I learned that organizing information by action as in the icons in the navigation bar, by common searches such as in the list in the left sidebar, and by time and season in the teaser boxes in the center column make it easy for a visitor to find what they are looking for. Having multiple ways to find the same information gives them more opportunities to run into the thing they want. Large teaser boxes with ample white space help create space between bits of info and help the user focus on one thing at a time.
A few screens showing how the site would respond to a small screen device were also required. Click on the mobile prototype link or scroll to see the mobile version.
