The Orange County Sanitation District needed to reconnect with their community. In order to do this, they called on Vision Internet to help them reinvent their dated design, restructure the confusing navigation, and facilitate simple content updates with a robust government content management system
. All of this was accomplished in early 2012, with the launch of the OC Sanitation website.
The new website gives a friendly face to the District through the use of positive employee photos and conversational content. An updated design welcomes and engages site visitors with vibrant colors, playful fonts, and a message of “We’re here for you.” Meanwhile, graphics mimicking the flow of nature encapsulate the sensibility of environmental sustainability actively promoted by the District.
The District reworked site content to carry a more intuitive, conversational tone. The homepage uses FAQs as section headers categorizing links to important interior pages (i.e. “What do we do?” and “Are you a resident?”). Interior pages use descriptive hyperlink lists and icons to clearly present information and services. Even a translation menu was worked into the site header to continue the conversation beyond English-speaking visitors.
