Reasons for Change

This old wordpress site had become outdated and difficult to update for the staff at Saanich School District. The template had been custom created for screen sizes that were much smaller than is normal today so appeared cramped. Ironically this design was not designed with mobile in mind so became even more difficult to navigate when viewing on a tablet or other mobile device.

The original developer was also no longer available for making updates to the template which was required for anything more complex than altering text or adding images.

Project Assessment

It was important to the client that no data be lost during the migration so we agreed that all articles and pictures would be moved into appropriate sections of the new design and layout. After a few meetings to discuss the needs of SISP staff and visitors to the site we gave some mockups of the template design and menu arrangement we felt would work best.
