In need of a refresh

Prior to the redesign, the website was 15+ years old and had a very dated design. Site updates were next to impossible to complete since staff were required to manually update HTML files. The site also used a .org address which did not denote an official government look and feel.

The redesign

This redesign included the creation of two websites: one for LRB and one for the Public Access Room (PAR), a division of LRB. Tyler Hawaii worked closely with both teams to collect, develop and design the new websites through facilitated meetings. Built in WordPress, staff can now easily edit their web content and the site was moved on to an official .gov domain.
