The challenge

Decoda Literacy Solutions is British Columbia’s literacy organization supporting literacy programs and practitioners in over 400 communities across the province. With all of the great initiatives that Decoda offers, their website had an overwhelming amount of information that wasn’t easy to navigate. The site was old and Decoda’s staff were afraid of updating it. It needed a fresh start

How we solved it with tech

Decoda provides important services to British Columbians, so we wanted to build a site that was easy for visitors and staff to use. We started with internal surveys that led to a strategy session with the entire Decoda team. Through the discovery process, we helped create a simplified site map that would provide users with the information they needed as quickly as possible. I then built landing pages with custom fields to introduce areas of the website, flexible content areas so staff can choose elements they need for specific pages (like accordions and styled testimonials), and a filter for the resource section so users can easily drill down to find exactly what they need.

Do you have multiple sites or complex content problems? Let’s figure them out together.

See Work Work with Me

We had a large and unwieldy website. We had some concerns about how we could take what we had and create what we needed. Krisztina and Lisa helped us define what we wanted to achieve with our new site: how we wanted it to work, how we could best manage it and how we wanted it to look and feel.

We are thrilled with what we achieved. Thank you KunStudios!
