The Green Party national, regional and local web sites provide news and information for voters as well as opportunities to actively engage with the political agenda. We started working with The Green Party in 2012. Their many websites (over 100) were in need of an visual overhaul and the MODX Content Management System needed to be upgraded.
The first project was to upgrade the CMS to the latest version of MODX, for which we engaged with the MODX core development team. This made the websites far more reliable, not to mention considerably faster.
The purpose of the website is to clearly promote all aspect of the party's aims and aspirations as well as providing a clear and consistent platform that can be rolled out to all sub-sites over time. The design needed to be as flexible as possible to allow for changing needs and future campaigns.
We have continued to work closely with the party, rolling out several updates to the design. Most recently we created the 2015 General Election website. Visits to the website climbed over 1000% from 2014 to 2015 and the site now attracts up to 1 million page views per month.
"Studio Republic have been a joy to work with. They understood our needs perfectly, got to grips with a potentially cumbersome project quickly and with the minimum of fuss and we are incredibly happy with the end result. The new site designs will set us up for further electoral success in the years to come."Mark Cridge, Management Coordinator, Green Party
