Custom Website Redesign

Chariton leaped into 2017 with a mobile-friendly website design

Chariton Valley Planning & Development Council of Governments wanted a modern, professional, branded and easy to navigate website with all of the aesthetic elements required to convert views into clicks and clicks into services, event calendar and press news. With an emphasis on improved UX, we created clear calls-to-action to help increases click-through rates and help visitors navigate to the information they need easily.
