Speaker.Gov

Reshaping the Capitol

Speaker.gov, the website for the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, elegantly presents extensive information with a clean look and enhanced user experience.

View Project

Speaker.gov provided new and interesting challenges to the NJI team, both because of the extensive amount of information it had to make publicly available and its location on the U.S. House of Representatives Drupal Platform.

With these stipulations in mind, the creative and development teams worked together to achieve the goals of finding a a simple way to display content, adding social media interaction with that content and creating a design that looked great whether it was on a desktop browser or a mobile device.

The result was a final product that elegantly presents a comprehensive amount of information with a clean look and enhanced user experience.

Reaching the Top

The Speaker of the House controls the ebb and flow of legislation in the United States House of Representatives. As the head of one house of Congress, the Speaker's online platform had to display a large amount of information at any one time for this purpose. It also had to look the part: the Speaker's role is elegant and historical, yet modern.

Define

Soaring High

We had a few objectives in mind to upgrade Speaker.gov: display information in a concise way, modernize the look and feel, and work within a secure Congressional framework. We were able to do all three with success.

Design

Defining the Brand

As an official player in the House process, the Speaker of the House needed a brand that would reflect the elevation of the office. We used a combination of modern sans serif fonts and custom illustration of a bald eagle to fuse a current motif with a nod to years past.

Breaking the Mold

Our teams worked together to achieve the goals of finding a a simple way to display content, adding social media interaction with that content and creating a design that looked great whether it was on a desktop browser or a mobile device. The result was a final product that elegantly presents a comprehensive amount of information with a clean look and enhanced user experience.

Develop

Clarity & Usability

The office of the Speaker of the House is a fast-paced environment, so it was up to NJI Media to make sure the site was easy to update and change at a moment's notice. NJI Media worked within a Drupal framework located in the U.S. House of Representatives network. We were able to seamlessly weave our standards and practices with a secure platform like this one, and the result is a stable, accessible back-end.

Deploy

House Warming

Working swiftly with teams within the internal Congressional information technology department HIR, NJI Media produced a quick deployment of a website that at once is a hub of essential information and a resource that reflects the power of the office of the Speaker of the House.
