Pawtucket shows its commitment to make government more accessible with new user
PAWTUCKET – The City of Pawtucket is proud to announce the launch of its new
website. The site was designed and developed by GLAD WORKS, a full service creative
agency located in Pawtucket for 15 of its 20 years in business, offering design, web
development, strategy and digital solutions.
GLAD WORKS has a reputation for being very committed to the success and growth of
the local government, since it is their belief that businesses and the City should
support one another. The City of Pawtucket is particularly supportive of its small
businesses, so GLAD WORKS was honored when they were retained to create a new logo
and rebrand the City. While working on the rebranding, they noticed that the city’s
new look did not match a new website that was already in development. Knowing that
having a consistent brand is a key to success, GLAD WORKS volunteered to help create
a new website at no additional charge. The result is a custom coded,
mobile-optimized, content-management-enabled website valued at more than $25,000.
«Our team has been very excited at the opportunity to collaborate with the City of
Pawtucket on this new website…especially as it also highlights their recently
debuted brand atop a technology platform which makes them more accessible to the
community,» said GLAD WORKS Founder and Creative Director Gina DiSpirito. «Our goal
was to create a visually enticing, simplified site that was well organized with the
user experience and convenience in mind,» continued DiSpirito.
The new site features photography by GLAD WORKS, is simple to navigate and is fully
responsive so that it can be easily used and accessed from a desktop, mobile phone,
or tablet. Residents can pay their water bill, vehicle tax, real estate tax or other
city bills online. It has been carefully designed to serve as a resource for
information on city departments, procedures, activities and more. The launch of this
new website goes a long way to help make government more accessible to everyone, so
that they can «Join the Evolution.»
«The new web platform will increase accessibility and ease of use for everyone
looking to find out more information about the City,» said Mayor Grebien of the new
website. «I am also keenly aware that for potential companies and businesses looking
at Pawtucket, our website is the first impression they will get of our great City
and we certainly want to put our best foot forward,» continued the Mayor.
The City encourages everyone to visit the new website at:
