After doing an original re-design of Barnet Council’s website in 2004, Nomensa were commissioned once again to refresh the cosmetic design of the site. While refreshing the look but remaining within existing style guidelines, Barnet Council needed to offer improved online services. In addition to this, they wanted to ensure their key messages were effectively communicated to the user. Barnet Council wanted to meet web accessibility standards and lay a foundation to maintain these standards on the new live website.
The result was a set of professional, dynamic templates for the new look Barnet Council website. The templates ensured improved online services and met all of Barnet’s objectives to complement their corporate identity. In addition to this, the templates Nomensa developed met the Double-A level of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Finally, Nomensa handed over the fully accessible templates to Barnet’s technical team to be integrated into the Council’s website.
"Nomensa has been key in helping transform the Barnet Council website into a user friendly site that meets high accessibility standards. The staff have without exception been knowledgeable and always extremely professional." - Project Manager, Barnet Council.
