The client

Westminster City Council is a local government authority.

The brief

The client required to promote an event taking place in Leicester Square and incorporate the information from an existing portal. The site needed to be standards compliant, accessible and visually striking. A Content Management System was required to enable the client to update the site via a web-based interface. The client also required domain name registration, web hosting and email addresses.

The solution

The site design and layout were created by cbrody.com following a series of meetings with the client. MODx was selected and implemented as the CMS for its standards compliance and ease of use by the client’s staff. Templates were developed using Dreamweaver and a text editor to create an XHTML/CSS site with Javascript for a moving filmstrip effect and Macromedia Flash for some visual effects. Macromedia Fireworks was used for graphics production and image optimisation.
