What We Know
Atlanta, GA (September 21, 2016) - O’Neill Communications received the 2016 WebAward for Outstanding Achievement in Web Development for its work on the website for the North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities (NCCDD). The award is one of many given by the Web Marketing Association each year.
O’Neill was tasked to develop a site providing critical public policy and program information to members of the intellectual and other developmental disabilities (I/DD) community and the general public on topics related to increasing inclusivity with an interactive experience.
On the site, users can sign-up for newsletters; browse the calendar of events; review the list of upcoming public meetings; and access the agendas and minutes of meetings. The website’s mobile-friendly design allows users to easily navigate key sections and keep up-to-date on advocacy opportunities and community programs that positively impact the lives of people with disabilities.
To better serve the state’s diverse population, the NCCDD site is Section 508 compliant, making it accessible to assistive technology such as readers and magnifiers for those with visual impairments or other disabilities and is also available in Spanish.
The website was judged on design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copywriting and ease of use. Out of an overall score of 70, the NCCDD website received a 65.5, outscoring the industry standard of 49 points.
“This website integrates the Council’s new brand strategy with a great deal of well organized and important information more accessible to people with disabilities and the public at large,” said Gordon O’Neill, president and CEO of O’Neill Communications. “Our team put in a lot of work on this site to make it a valuable go-to resource for North Carolina’s disability community. We appreciate this honor from the Web Marketing Association.”
The firm was also a finalist in the 2016 Content Marketing Awards for Best Annual Report produced for the Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities.
