Cook County Public Guardian

July 20th, 2010

We recently had the pleasure of working on the web design and development of the new Cook County Public Guardian website. Public Guardian came to us with the desire to refresh their online presence with a particular focus on ease of use and full accessibility. Our web development and design team worked closely with the client to pull together the design that is now live at www.publicguardian.org. The three main branches of the Cook County Public Guardian are now clearly defined in the three main sections across the top of the page, and each has it’s own accent color when in a page of that section.

In order to maintain section 508 compliance and accessibility, our web development team first started with the basic structure of the design before adding the additional elements. This ensured that as many browsers as possible would be able to reliably render the site as it was intended. We constantly tested new features and pages in 6 web browsers ranging from 10 years old to the most cutting edge release. With all this attention to detail we’ve created a website that is widely visible and accessible.

Mobile Dreyer Medical Clinic

July 8th, 2010

Just before the holiday weekend took us all away to barbecues and fireworks, Chicago Producers launched the new mobile version of Dreyer Medical Clinic. The mobile website located at http://mobile.dreyermed.com/ contains the four most widely used features of the Dreyer website, Doctor/Provider Search, Locations, Walk-In Care Wait Times, and Accepted Insurance. Now a patient can use their phone to map directions to a Walk-In Care location and find out how long they’re going to wait once they get there.

As an additional feature, we also added an automatic mobile browser detection so people going to the full site from their phone would automatically be redirected to the easier-to-use mobile version. We also provided a link to the full site from the mobile version for those users that would still like to browse the live site.

Mobile websites don’t have to be a stripped down version of the full site, but rather a complimentary extension of it. We believe this mobile website is just that, an extension of the full Dreyer Medical website for patients on the go.

For this and other examples of mobile websites, social media and email marketing check out our Mobile Web Design page. Feel free to contact us online or give us a call at 800.467.1497 to talk about a mobile version of your website.

New CP Web site and brand launched!

May 3rd, 2010

It has been a bit of a journey over the last year but all the hard work has finally paid off, the new redesign of ChicagoProducers.com was launched last Friday!

The new site aims to make finding information easier and more intuitive and to showcase our work in new ways. Next up we have a lot of new and exciting project examples to add to the site and we’re working on a new client resource section where you will be able to download templates, learn industry terms and processes.

Also as part of this redesign we  gave our company branding a little TLC and have developed a new logo mark to accompany and underscore our company name and the Chicago Producers experience. The new mark illustrates how our team here at Chicago Producers works. To some extent, each project we do here requires a custom process. While some projects may only require design services, others may visit photography, design, Web and finally media before all is said and done. Our team members work in conjunction with each other as the project advances towards completion—the focus of the project and team shifts and adjusts to the project and client’s needs.

As you can tell, we’re really excited about our visual and digital presence and hope you find the new developments engaging and informative. We’re looking forward to sharing our work with you and to your future projects.
