  • South Dakota Department of Revenue

Start your web project.

Our work with the South Dakota Department of Revenue was more than a successful Umbraco installation — it was also another successful agency partnership. Working with partner Lawrence & Schiller, Blend helped architect and develop their already determined design in a way that was accessible and mobile-friendly, combining our knowledge of the CMS with their communication-focused direction.

Our partnership with agencies has always been an area of pride for Blend — we love working with other organizations to find common ground, using the best of both worlds to find solutions we might not otherwise be able to achieve on our own. In the case of the Department of Revenue, this lead to a successful launch and a more accessible site.


The friendly, open-source CMS that supports your workflows, empowers your editors, and takes your website’s performance to new heights.
