Valdez Convention & Visitor's Bureau

Improving website organization so that visitor’s can quickly find the information that interests them was an important aspect to this redesign project. During the initial design phase, target audiences were identified and used to help direct additions to the old website content. Content was reorganized into sections easily identifiable by color codes.

Marketing the city of Valdez was another important part of this project. Abundant use of lightweight photos, a homepage slideshow with marketing messages and beautiful graphic design help to achieve this goal.

In order to increase the website’s value to its members, a members section was created. An online Visitor’s Guide request tool makes it easy for VCVB staff to monitor and print requests received from the website.
