Allegheny County

Web Design and Development

Home to Pittsburgh and one of the key cities in America’s rise as an industrial power, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania has undergone a huge transformation over the last several decades. Moving from an economy based on steel production, to one centered on research, education, healthcare and the arts, this region is truly an American success story. Despite these successes, perception of the area was still stuck in the era of Big Steel. Carousel30 worked with Allegheny County to discover, define and create a brand that reflects the innovation and growth present here, while still paying homage to its industrial roots. ALWAYS INSPIRING was chosen as a tagline that reflects this spirit of constant innovation and evolution. Starting with that and the new logo that reflects the diversity of the region, Carousel30 then created a website that would live up to the challenge that our tagline presents.

Carousel30 worked with the Allegheny County team to build a new website for the organization. Building upon the foundation of the new ALWAYS INSPIRING brand we created, Carousel30 designed a dynamic Web presences that allows Allegheny County to illustrate the many diverse opportunities, events and locations present throughout the area, while also providing a great user experience for users to navigate this 6,000+ page website. Among other features a new “How Do I…” feature allows visitors to quickly find answers to commonly asked questions that are context-specific. Built on the EPiSERVER / Ektron Content Management System platform, the website allows the County to manage content in a flexible way, allowing specific editing where needed, and global updates in other areas.

Responsive Design Approach

With a mobile-friendly responsive design approach, the website caters to a wide variety of residents, businesses and visitors who use the site on the go. It was important that the mobile version of the site not sacrifice any content available to desktop users, but provide an optimal user experience to all, regardless of whether they are accessing on a smartphone, tablet or desktop device. This mobile approach extended from the initial planning stages through the design and development of the website on the EPiSERVER / Ektron CMS platform.
