The International Awards Associates (IAA) released their list of winners for the 2023 MUSE Creative Awards last week and Clarity received recognition for our website design for the Cook County Public Defender’s Office.

About the Project

Clarity was tasked with redesigning and re-platforming the PDO website where we implemented a drastically different look for the homepage, basic pages, and other site features. We also migrated all web pages, images, document, and other digital media to the new Drupal 9 CMS. This new site has a modern look, easier content administration, enhanced search, improved web accessibility, and a modular page-building feature using Site Studio. Clarity trained the PDO team on how to use the new site and they are now building their own pages with pre-selected layouts, banners, and widgets.

The scope of services for Cook County included, but was not limited to:

  • Website Redesign
    • New UX
    • New UI
    • New Sitemap
  • Re-platform (D7 to D9)
  • Content migration
  • Directory Import
  • Twitter API Integration
