The New York State Council on the Arts, a state funding agency that supports nonprofit arts and cultural organizations, wanted to replace the laborious paper-based grant application process with a new, streamlined, web-based system. NYSCA had retained a firm to develop the online registration and application piece but still needed to restructure and update its public website. Cabengo came in to design and re-architect the site content, and assist in the transition from paper materials – including the 200 page Program Guidelines document – to a completely web-based system.
Since the website would now serve as the primary resource for information about the grant application process, the site needed to be highly functional, accessible, fast-loading, and ADA compliant. We created a legible and easy to navigate new site, with an updated, clean look.
