TWD designs 3rd Iteration of Tri-County EMC website
Posted on Jul 01, 2015
The site is the 3rd iteration designed by Third Wave Digital. As an EMC, Tri-County has a promise of convenience to their customers to uphold. This promise extends from providing power and education to guaranteeing ease of use of the website. Third Wave Digital was more than happy to shed new light on their previous website and help usher them into a brighter future with a responsive design.
The new design developed by Third Wave began with an update on the existing color palette. The site uses a bright blue, coral and white along with the classic green. These colors were chosen to set Tri-County apart and to convey brightness and accessibility to their customers.
It was important to showcase certain types of information on the homepage, links to the popular services like paying your bill, reporting an outage or getting an energy audit. The remaining space is allotted to the news, videos and a slideshow encouraging you to explore deeper into the site. The responsive design ensures that whether the site is viewed on a phone, tablet or desktop the experience always stays the same for users.
Another important feature of the website is the new Storm Center, this page is the only stop you need to make for updates during a storm. You can see the current outage map, report outage and access information frequently needed during bad weather.
Tri-county EMC launched their newsletter “Current Lines” in 1941 has been looked to since then for electricity related news. For this reason The Media Center on the website needed to be especially robust, this center designed especially for Tri-County EMC has handy tabs to access the newsletter, news updates and social media.
The Tri-County EMC staff was already well versed in the TWD.CMS, but was excited to jump into the most recent version. Their 6.0 features included the rotator tool, news and press, custom page templates, the form builder and much more. With all these tools they are able to manage the website at light speed!
