We were contacted by Purdue Pesticide Programs after they heard about our work with Purdue’s Forestry & Natural Resources Extension as well as the Community Development Extension. Their program faced similar challenges, including:

  1. Their site was built using SharePoint and was incredibly difficult to update.
  2. They were limited to the design and template provided to all the extensions that used SharePoint.
  3. Their site map and content were disorganized and not easy to navigate.
  4. Their site was not responsive.

The first step was to get their content organized. As the discovery process evolved, it became clear that their two main audiences deserved a section of their own where they could quickly and easily find all the information pertaining to their specific needs.

Next came the creative and development process which involved designing a custom responsive WordPress theme that was unique to their program while still adhering to Purdue’s brand guidelines. New features on the site include a sortable directory of their 100+ publications, a clean layout displaying all their manuals, a customized calendar plugin with search and filter options and a blog.
