The Village of Lake BluffThe Village of Lake Bluff

The redesign for this website was driven by the Village's new branding initiative, which aimed to promote the laid-back and down-to-earth nature of Lake Bluff's community. New to the website is a slideshow on the home page, which provides a showcase of Village events and important information. The website features a newsletter sign-up where residents can choose to receive the weekly Village newsletter by e-mail. The newsletter is generated from existing website content and calendar events, making the sending process easy for staff.

The design for this library was based on their need for an intuitive navigation, an improved user interface, and a consistent layout. Their catalog search is used heavily by patrons so this was placed prominently on every page. The main navigation was created with a mega menu, allowing visitors to see all pages of the website just by hovering over the main menu items.

The goal for this project was to update the current design and move the website platform to a content management system so staff could easily manage the website. A slideshow on the home page highlights upcoming events and important information. The Library's Research Databases section utilizes the CMS's tagging system. These tags are listed in the side menu, which allows visitors to view databases for specific tags.
