BrightLeaf Group recently created two microsites for KKR, a global investment firm based in New York City and and a long-term client. The sites focused on communicating KKR’s ongoing efforts to support their ESG and Green Portfolio Program initiatives. Care was given to create a look and feel that was in harmony with KKR’s brand, while being user friendly and easy to navigate. Craft CMS was leveraged for content management, enabling KKR to be self-sufficient in maintaining content on the sites.
The Harris County Appraisal District (HCAD) partnered with BrightLeaf Group to create a new website with an easy-to-navigate and accessible experience. Because of the large amount of content on the site, BrightLeaf Group helped to reorganize the information so it could be easily accessed and consumed by end users. BrightLeaf Group additionally implemented Craft CMS, enabling HCAD to manage their ongoing content needs easily.
Faced with a large reorganization and consolidation of multiple agencies, Texas Health and Human Services engaged BrightLeaf Group to help them strategically plan for and design a new website. This was a very large project, spanning multiple stakeholder agencies and third-party vendors. BrightLeaf Group facilitated a complete re-branding, new site architecture and content management system, content analysis, migration of thousands of pages of content, and the design of an accessible user experience.
Air Central Texas (ACT) is an initiative to reduce exposure to air pollution in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson Counties. BrightLeaf Group created a website to support this initiative, providing expertise on the UX design, accessibility, and configuration of a back-end content management system that could support a Spanish version of the site. BrightLeaf Group also created an emissions calculator to help people understand their impact on regional air quality. Both the site and calculator were created and launched on aggressive timelines.
