OPIN was engaged by the Privy Council Office on behalf of the Office of the Prime Minister to plan design, develop, and implement the new website for the Prime Minister of Canada.
The project timeline was very short, with only three months to complete a new creative design, implement the new Drupal system, and develop the required custom theme and modules. To keep the project on track, our project managers revised the project schedule on a weekly basis, addressing leads and lags when necessary.
Our creative director worked tirelessly with the Prime Minister’s creative team to develop the new designs, which would later be recognized by the International Summit Creative Awards as the Best Government Web Design of 2014 and by Acquia as the 2015 Partner site of the year
The search interface was powered by Google Search Appliance (GSA). Leveraging existing contributed modules, and extending their functionality with our own custom modules, we implemented Google Search Appliance, including faceted searching.
The Prime Minister’s staff, including the communications department from the Privy Council Office, were provided with fundamental Drupal training, ensuring they could effectively manage content.
