Invest in Fife
Design/Coding | www.investinfife.co.uk
We originally won a tender to design a website for Invest in Fife in 2011. The site served them well and was tweaked down the years but was starting to show its age. As such, we were asked to redevelop the site to make it more up-to-date, including introducing a fully responsive design.
We produced a new, bright and inviting design that makes it easy to find all the information included on the site and puts key calls to action to the fore throughout.
The new site had to be developed around the existing one so we were able to put in place systems allowing the pages to be viewed in both the old and new templates at once, making it easy for the new site to be populated and any tweaks to be carried across.
The site had to contain a lot of information so we ensured the design was able to provide access to it without being confusing. We also included a prominent search button on every page to help users find the information they’re looking for.
We worked with the team at Invest in Fife to identify elements of the previous site that weren't performing well for them as they had evolved, coming up with approaches to make these more user-friendly going forward.
How it works
The site is powered by our fuzzylime (cms+) system, which was already in use for the previous site, meaning the team are able to use a system they're used to straight away. We included specific plugins to manage elements such as downloads and maps within the system.
