Icon’s extended website design and development service
We run tailored workshops with project stakeholders to understand intent, user types and cultural requirements – connecting needs, content and messaging requirements.
We work with project teams to create road-maps and timelines, outline technical requirements, define channels and content, and link with a launch strategy.
We team with departments, IT and communications managers to create usable, secure and scalable digital services for citizens; and are experts in applying modern design and development principles.
Prototyping and UI design
With the benefits of rapid, interactive prototyping, we can test, validate and iterate information architecture, wireframe prototypes, and draft content with real people to enhance your service’s usability and usefulness. We'll then bring your website to life with a fresh and modern look and feel.
Content production and governance
Ensure your editors and site managers understand the why, when and how of content publishing. If needed, Icon's editors and writers can create tone-of-voice guidelines and content to suit specific audiences. A clear communications strategy, custom content creation, use of search and taxonomies, and clever storytelling ensure your messaging is concise and useful.
We can theme and build a custom Drupal website to meet your project's specific needs, extending its functionality via off-the-shelf modules and custom development. We can also upgrade your site from Drupal 7 to Drupal 10 to ensure it remains viable after the November 2023 end of support date.
GovCMS SaaS and PaaS
If needed, we can deploy GovCMS to ensure your project is based on approved government standards and is hosted and supported via a fully managed service or stand-alone instance.
Deploy a web-based design system to maintain consistency and brand essence at scale and across all your digital touch-points. We support integrated and stand-alone design systems, which can be used for more than just Drupal.
Speed up development with a library of pre-built, pre-tested website elements ready for any developer.
We advocate for, and comply with, the Digital Transformation Agency’s Digital Service Standard and accessibility requirements documented under the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
We can seamlessly integrate content between websites and third-party data sources to provide a unified experience for your users through the use of existing or custom-built APIs.
Launch and improve
Launching a digital project is only the beginning. We help measure and iterate to meet your communications goals, plan future functionality, and manage technical and security upgrades.
Icon partners with tier 1 Australian hosting providers, including GovCMS, AWS and Amazee.io, to provide a secure, best-in-class hosting service approved for government use.
