Develop a redesigned, modern website with a more flexible content management system

A Canadian institution with a national purpose, the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation is an independent and non-partisan charity. It was established in 2001 as a living memorial to the former prime minister.

The goal was a complete redesign of the website, visually and functionally, and we built it upon an open-source content management system: Drupal. This allows the Foundation's team to no longer be "locked in" to their web supplier and allows them to easily update the website's content.

During the process, we also redirected all the old URLs to pages in the new website - this allows their website's search engine ranking (SEO) to be maintained. The creation of content-types adapted to their needs was one of our priorities, and links between these allow for dymanic display of community members.

Many thanks to Paprika for the website's design!

Launch Date : August 2012
