Ontario Municipal Web Solution Wins Gold

Town of Collingwood homepage view beside gold dotCOMM award

Collingwood is a beautiful town north of Toronto, situated on the vast Georgian Bay. We partnered with the Town's team this year to design and develop a new municipal goverment website that better serves their residents, businesses, and visitors. 

Accessibility and user-friendly content were the priority for Collingwood. The Town's new website is citizen-centric and engaging, showcasing local events and making it easy for anyone to find information and services. The design incorporates best practices for web accessibility. It features navigation tools like quicklinks on the homepage and an I want to... menu that helps residents easily apply for everything from a dog tag to a marriage licence.

Creating a great user experience meant a major shift for the Town's complex and sometimes repetitive site map. Town staff were passionate and determined throughout the process of reconfiguring and distilling content. The result is an easy-to-use website, thoughtfully organized for their audiences. 

We're happy to share that our Drupal solution for the Town won gold in the 2019 dotCOMM Awards this summer! This leading international competition recognizes excellence in web creativity and digital communication. Our team is proud of the user-focused design and development that went into their website. Take a minute to explore the Town's award-winning municipal web solution!
