The PSRC determined they were in need of a website redesign, and when Drupal announced it would be sunsetting Drupal 7 (the content management system (CMS) their existing website was built with), it was a perfect opportunity to overhaul the entire site. This would allow for improvements to the functionality of the website through an updated CMS in addition to redesigning the appearance of the website and improving the navigation for users.
The PSRC wanted a new site that is informative, visually appealing, engaging, and easy to use for all visitors. They have various groups of users to consider including member organizations, the public, and staff website editors. It was determined the site must accommodate the full spectrum of user abilities and experiences so accessibilities and features such as translation capabilities was of high importance.
