Tandridge District Council website redesign

We are very pleased to announce the launch of the Tandridge District Council website on 3rd July after only 3 months in the making!

In March, we were commissioned by Tandridge to assist in scoping out their new website redesign.

The aim was to reduce the 1,000 content pages down to under 500 whilst giving the website a modern visual style that meets with today’s responsive web standards.

We started by facilitating a workshop with staff where to review the navigation structure which went on to inform the framework of the website. Additional user research with members of the public cemented the framework.

SDS also undertook best practice research on design and web trends for 2017 along with analysis of other local authority websites. This research was fed back to the developers, Purple Creative Studio who took it through to their design team and after a few iterations, we were user testing the prototype with members of the public. Meanwhile Tandridge DC staff were undertaking their own content review, streamlining the user flow and cutting back on unnecessary content.

All in all, the whole team worked extremely well together, working in an agile manner pushing through iterations at a breakneck speed to produce an excellent result for Tandridge District Council which has met customers expectations from day one of it’s launch.
