Connect people with resources.

Problem: Public resources are scattered across multiple sources and websites.

Solution: Create a simple website to link all information in one place.

Example: New Resident Portal for Hamden, CT

1. Choose audience

Who are you creating this portal for and what are they trying to do?

Deciding this is the first step and affects the outline, design, and purpose of the site.

2. Outline site

Make a rough outline of all the categories of information you will put on the site.

Try to limit the main categories to no more than six.




3. Create site

Don’t get fancy. Create a simple website to host the portal with the main categories along with their subcategories.

Use the least words possible.
