I started working with Local Gov Drupal by doing the designs for LBHF, starting with workshops to understand what we need to build, what currently works and what doesn’t and most importantly for the council, how can we leverage the work of Local Gov Drupal.
During designing the 8 or so web pages (yes I know what I said in the last blog post) it was really nice to be able to look at a handful of other websites including the example site for LGD and deciding where I can afford to spend time being creative.
Instead of redesigning the wheel and having to find the research to back up what I’m doing etc. I can be sure that LGD has factored in Usability and Accessibility from the get go. This free’s up my time to get on with the real uniqueness of LBHF further and deeper than just the branding colours already chosen by council.
