Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union came to the Tower team in the summer of 2017 to rebuild their website. As a large credit union serving the Greater Philadelphia Region since 1970, they were looking for a partner that had experience in their industry. They were also looking for this partner to provide them with a content management system (CMS) that was easy for their marketing department to manage, update, and keep relevant for their members and community partners.
The first step to take in this project was to work with the marketing team at Franklin Mint to improve the user experience of their navigation. As a financial institution, there was a lot of relevant information that needed to be provided to their audience on a consistent basis in a way that made sense without causing the risk of duplication.
Next, our goal was to improve the way in which information was being offered visually on a page and managed through the admin of WordPress. We built custom post types to manage loan officers, rates, sitewide alerts, dynamic page CTAs, and homepage banners in a central location in the admin. This provides Franklin Mint the ability to update the content efficiently and distribute pertinent details across multiple pages of their website.
Finally, we ensured that the design and development of the new website would be fully ADA compliant and pass a rigorous auditing process for overall compliance for their institution and industry. This included some color exploration during the moodboard phase to find a complementary brand color that could be used to draw attention to important design elements throughout the website.
You can rest assured that your website will be built with forward-thinking technologies that will set you apart from the competition.
