Project Goals

This project served as a good example of how we work with our partners to not only educate them on current Web standards and best practices, but how we listen and find creative ways to make sure their main objectives are met or work to improve them. In short, this project has collaboration coded all over it.

One important aspect of the old site Controlled Access wanted to preserve was product image placement on the homepage. As a result, we designed and hand-coded an interactive product display that was not only an aesthetic and functional improvement, but better organized products into proper categories so consumers could easily begin navigating the site. This functional element keeps its integrity even at the smallest screen widths to ensure true cross-platform consistency.

Another important objective for Controlled Access was search engine optimization. We accomplished this by optimizing our code base during the development phase and working closely with the Controlled Access team to make sure all provided content met certain standards and criteria from our Digital Marketing team. We feel the extra time taken to educate staff members will really pay dividends, as they'll be able to create SEO-friendly content independently.
