Digital communications agency CIVIC has been chosen to redesign Scotland.gov.uk, the Scottish Government’s corporate website.
The refresh will focus on bringing the homepage and news sections of Scotland.gov.uk up to date with current and emerging means of communicating using effective design and technology. The new design will help the Government to engage their audiences and encourage greater user participation and feedback. In particular CIVIC will utilise and promote the use of social media and video on the site to improve engagement with hard to reach demographics.
Greig Tosh, CIVIC’s Managing Director, says: “This is a great opportunity to cement Scotland.gov.uk’s reputation as a world class Government website, by creating the best possible user experience with our award winning design capabilities and the use of modern techniques grounded by our best practice principles.”
He adds, “We are delighted to be involved in this design project and believe that we have the right capability, experience and proven track record to deliver such a high profile project.”
Earlier this month, CIVIC announced that it had been appointed to the Central Government Centre of Procurement Expertise (“CGCoPE”) Framework for Provision of Applications, Web Development and Associated Services.
CIVIC is an independent creative digital agency and has been delivering high profile digital and technical projects in the public and private sector since 2001. Few companies in Scotland today have CIVIC’s strength in combining technology and design into a functional solution. CIVIC’s unique blend of form, function, technology and design enables the agency to make great digital ideas work online.
