WEF Website Modernization

Today’s water professionals work to provide clean water and essential services for communities, while adapting to and finding solutions to issues such as the impacts of climate change, aging infrastructure, a retiring work force, and the global water crisis. The new design of the site communicates the opportunities and possibilities of choosing a career in water, and encourages job seekers to explore a careers across a wide spectrum of positions.

The Matrix Group team worked closely with AWWA and WEF to understand the industry, why working in water is terrific, target audiences for working in water, and the important conversions for the website. We started with user personas, then moved to re-imagined content and user flows, a beautiful design, and more high impact content.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed pretium ipsum nec condimentum vehicula. Quisque lobortis pretium enim, ac ultricies lectus pellentesque at. Donec ornare lectus et erat dictum, vitae viverra justo sagittis. Aenean tincidunt dui eu ex condimentum mattis. Maecenas sit amet risus sit amet ante mollis lobortis. Suspendisse et orci ac dolor cursus pellentesque. Vestibulum at massa blandit, pellentesque mi sed, vestibulum nibh. Fusce a massa bibendum, maximus enim non, maximus lectus.

Integer quis hendrerit purus, quis auctor leo. Nam facilisis pellentesque mauris viverra fringilla. Etiam vel interdum sapien. Nunc tincidunt mauris vitae odio egestas imperdiet. Maecenas id dui et mauris tincidunt aliquam at ut nisl. Aenean nec vehicula est. Phasellus non dui dolor. Proin sed lorem vel enim pretium semper et eu ligula.

The Solution

The new website is a completely reimagined experience for members, prospective members and all persons interested in HEOR. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Vestibulum vitae dignissim lectus, scelerisque suscipit diam.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Duis enim ex, vulputate nec facilisis nec, facilisis non lectus. Nullam ac ligula quis risus luctus pulvinar. Proin tempus efficitur efficitur. Nam commodo blandit vestibulum. Mauris facilisis tellus lorem, quis blandit enim tristique in.

The Result

To help the AWWA and WEF reach their goals, Matrix Group:

  • Produced new logo and branding assets
  • Designed a fresh new website with revived imagery, color palette and imagery to communicate the various career possibilities in water
  • Provided SEO consultation on search phrases and other use cases to inform content
  • Built the new design as a WordPress theme and implemented in the WordPress content management system
  • Built a custom directory and map of state-by-state resources and information related to licensing, certifications, related organizations, training programs and regional job searches
  • Launched the new site on time, and on budget

“We are most excited about the Get Started map. While the water industry is global, the employment, particularly for operations personnel, is local, due to the varying state licensing requirements. Finding information specific to your state or region can be a large barrier to entering the field. This map provides a tool for site visitors to easily find information specific to their region”
