County Kildare Vocational Education Committee (VEC) provides a comprehensive range of education services throughout Kildare. More Creative was approached with the view of creating an improved content management system since the existing content management system had outgrown its use. The navigation was also restricted and it needed to be flexible to accomodate the website’s growing needs. The UI (User Interface) needed to be simple and easy to use.
It was decided to use a bespoke wordpress custom built solution to fit the needs, because it met the flexibility of the website requirements. The fact that WordPress is an open source software meant that the functionality of the software will continue to expand and grow taking in new technologies. The client was also able to control and manage 95% of the website using the WordPress development software. It was decided to have a vertical left hand side navigation because it would then be able to accomodate the growth of the site. (A horizontal navigation would be limited by the fixed width so would not be able to expand) hence the vertical navigation was the logical solution. We integrated the power for the user to increase / decrease the font size of the website for reasons of accessibility and for good UX (User Experience). The structure of the website is simple and easy to use without confusing the user with excessive use of content and multiple navigational menus.
We used More Creative to design our corporate branding and put together a website when we launched the business. Eamonn offered great advice on how to make the site user friendly and set it up for us on Wordpress so that we could edit our own content. Eamonn was really good to deal with and included a training session on using the software. GABY MURPHY (Purple Grass Consulting) - www.purplegrass.ie
