St. Paul Port Authority
The St. Paul Port Authority (SPPA) needed a new website that felt current and modern to the site visitors—anyone from city residents to government officials—while also helping raise visibility of the valuable work they do in the city of St. Paul. To accomplish this goal, Windmill Design created a fresh, easy-to-navigate website that would showcase the powerful work of the innovative, community-focused organization.
The updated website was built on the “Windmill Blade Site” platform—creating a simple but impactful site that is customizable and flexible as the organization’s needs grow, powered by a WordPress content management system and built responsively. Windmill designed SPPA’s website to be mobile-friendly and user friendly, as one of the main purposes was to serve as an information hub for visitors to learn about the Port Authorities offerings through press releases and meeting notes. A rotating header banner features case studies and information on some of the most recent SPPA projects and a color-coded navigation menu with iconography was placed below the header space as a visual way to showcase SPPA’s areas of expertise. Bright, bold colors and modern typography were used throughout the site to ensure the new website looked current and up-to-date. Overall, Windmill created a mobile-friendly website with a current look-and-feel that easily communicates SPPA’s work across many different activities.
