The Village of Morton selected the web design experts of OIC Group to help with a much needed website re-design. The challenge centered on how the website could portray the local governmental offices, county services, and citizen support information, while still catering to visitors and tourists of Morton.
Success hinged on a cohesive homepage that encompassed these elements, without overwhelming users when they landed on the website. The homepage of website showcases a large and high–quality image slide show that's relevant to all types of users, whether local or visitors of the area. Above the imagery is a drop-down navigation which helps to keep each of the main areas of focus very organized for users.
Also in the top fold are three blocks for Public Notices, Feature Topics, and Tourist Information. So in the top-fold alone, almost any visitor of the Village of Morton website can find what they're looking for. Further down on the homepage is a News and Announcements section, along with contact information for each primary office in the Morton area.
The rest of the website is developed around a very intuitive navigation making it easy for users to find their way around the website. Lastly, the Peoria web designers of OIC were able to create a fantastic theme that showcases the actual Village of Morton in the design's backdrop. Overall, the project was a great success for the OIC team, and fine folks at the Village of Morton were very happy with the outcome.
