Moving a Bank from Design to Umbraco Implementation
Western State Bank had a design that needed to be implemented within Umbraco. Thankfully, that’s exactly what Blend was able to help them do.
Western State Bank had an idea: a design ready to be transitioned into a new site. As a regional bank, they understood the stakes: it had to work fast, it had to be accessible, and it had to follow through on its promises to its customers. All they needed was the right tool to build it on.
That’s where Umbraco — and Blend — came into the picture. With Western State Bank’s dream of building in Umbraco, and our experience within both Umbraco and the financial services industry, we helped empower Western State Bank with a project plan that took their ideas and brought them to life.
First, our front-end team interpreted existing design and interactive prototypes to bring code up to WCAG 2.1 AA standards, making sure everything is accessible and ready for those of any ability. This included a review of user interface functionality to ensure it works on any device or screen width.
Once front end was standardized, we began building the site in Umbraco. The content model outlined in design was built up within the CMS relatively quickly— or “friendly,” as Umbraco might say — with automated migration of common structured content like news posts rounding out the project.
In the end, we celebrated the launch of another great Umbraco project — and another great client partnership — that we’re looking forward to maintaining for years to come.
- Translation of initial mockups and prototypes into accessible front-end
- Implementation of the full site and content model using Umbraco
- Definition of site goals and post-launch follow-up
