We were contacted by NCPRD about designing a website for them. They saw the website that we did for GCRD and wanted us to make their site informational and easy to navigate. We designed a customized site allowing them to manage lots of information in a way that was clear and easy to understand. It is also a visual site with lots of pictures and graphics making it fun to look at. We also designed a way for them to have their Discovery Guide online and used a flip reader so you can actually read through the guide just like you would a magazine.
