Project Body: 

The Challenge

The previous North Carolina Alliance for Effective Care Transitions (NCACT) website architecture made it difficult for users to quickly find desired content. Most user interaction was primarily presented as links in the body content, making it very easy to overlook. It was also difficult to add new functionality related to gathering organization profiles and member sharing.

The Solution

DesignHammer migrated their existing content to a new WordPress website, vastly improved the navigation, and increased user interaction. With the ability to quickly add and customize new web-forms NCACT was able to get the information they needed from organization members. This also simplified the submission process. This allowed them to build a large database of healthcare organizations which benefits the users who need this information.

The Challenge

The previous website was built on a custom CMS which limited it to only few administrative capabilities. The design was also outdated and did not have appropriate support for mobile devices.

The Solution

DesignHammer migrated all the existing website's content to WordPress. WordPress is a far more widely used and well supported CMS compared to their custom solution. WordPress allowed the Center to add more cost-effective functionality which in turn brought more value to their users. We also provided a fresh new design that is modern and mobile-friendly.

The Challenge

The previous website was built on Drupal 6, which hit end of life February of 2016. This meant the community no longer provided support for security updates. Additional, the website was built with a very rigid content entry workflow. This was a constant uphill battle which forced them to come up with inefficient workarounds for entering content. SAMSI also wanted to refresh their design to be cleaner and have simpler and more modern look.

The Solution

We redesigned the SAMSI website and successfully migrated their Drupal 6 content to a new WordPress CMS. In the process we removed many of the content editing restrictions that the previous site had in favor of a more free-form workflow. We also provided a comprehensive design style guide to help content editors maintain the site's professional look and feel.

The Challenge

The existing website was originally designed in 1996 to provide access to the works and images of William Blake. The Archive provides scholars and the general public access to high quality color corrected images of Blake’s art as well as the text of Blake’s works, commentary, and research tools.

It was designed for scholars who want to study Blake as a professionally edited site, not to make Blake accessible to the lay user and amateur scholar. The Archive wanted to maintain this prestigious status, but also present a more contemporary, and user-friendly images to non-scholars.

The Solution

We created a slick, uncluttered interface to make all of the image information readily available. We then streamlined the navigation across the archive. To create this desired user interface, we engaged in several stages of web design: Wireframes, Design Concepts, and HTML/JS/CSS build out. The new site has a modern, easy to use interface, which brings forward the well crafted artwork William Blake had created.

Case Study Intro: 

The UNC School of Government needed a system that would drastically reduce the amount of time between the print and electronic releases of its publication North Carolina Crimes: A Guidebook on the Elements of Crime. Using the Drupal platform, we created a custom system that allows for same-day release of the electronic and print editions of NC Crimes, an 800-page book with thousands of cross-references.

When we published the 2012 supplement edition in February 2013, the updated online edition was launched live on 2/6/13, and the print edition arrived from the printer on 2/14/13. We are very pleased with the professional quality of DesignHammer’s work and their top-notch customer service.
