Create a flexible, informative, up-to-date website that is easy to maintain and is viewable by desktop and mobile devices. In addition to designing a user-friendly site with an intuitive interface, you must also incorporate a content management system that allows critical personnel to update content without directly accessing source code quickly. Our current site uses WordPress, but the Tribe is committed to an open-source content management software solution for our needs but does not prefer a specific platform like WordPress.
For pages and content that is not yet in existence, the preference is to have user-selectable, predefined templates to choose from that dictate the layout and color scheme. Our new site should engage visitors by presenting attractive visual images, intuitive navigation, and concise messaging while at the same time increasing functionality and ease of use. The incorporated tools must allow for timely delivery of content using basic technical skills and limited personnel. Clearly articulate key messaging from the Tribe more effectively by making it easy for the Tribe to share and post information and for users to find and interact with the information
To meet our goals, our new site must:
- Improve usability of the website
- Provide a modern, relevant design update
- Showcase the departments and programs at the Tribe
- Engage site visitors
- Provide a scalable and manageable solution
- Be safe and secure
