Government Website Design & Development For Parramatta Council

The Opportunity

The City of Parramatta is going through a period of massive growth as it cements its position as Sydney’s second CBD. To help raise awareness of these changes and the opportunities they present to residents, visitors and the business community, the Parramatta Council approached experienced government website design agency Bapple to develop an all new website for their new “Parramatta: Where its At” brand campaign. See the website here.

The Challenge

We had a very limited timeframe for this project (just 6 weeks), so we had to move fast. We would need to develop the site, including various custom modules and allowing for high levels of flexibility, using the secure drupal platform to ensure the website achieved government standards.

The Strategy

We needed to highlight the bold new “Parramatta: Where Its At” brand with an all the new website that was not only beautiful – but easy to use, accessible and secure. We started with a UX phase where we created wireframes and mockups to help us achieve a high level of usability. From here our designers brought the new brand to life, applying it beautifully to every page. Then, in rapid time, our developers made the designs a reality using the stable and secure drupal platform, developing many custom modules and building the site to be flexible to allow for easy future expansion.
