Needs of the users
Next 10 color palette was yellow, black and tan. I added simple primary and secondary colors, purple, blue, and green, to give the site a little more life. The colors defined their three main topics, energy, budget, and economy & governance.
The redesign was limited to select pages. I worked within the original website theme and layouts to produce a design that facilitated access to publications and increased time spent on the website while blending the new pages with the old ones.
