City of Tombstone Municipal Website Design
City of Tombstone's Municipal Website Design Project
In Summer 2014, our team took on the project of redesigning the City of Tombstone web site. They had a situation that was not unlike what many other municipalities have when they call us up. Their current (old) web site was difficult to update, and therefore was out-of-date.

After signing a contract for a new Municipal Website Design project, our first step was to grant the City Clerk and a Council Member with access to our online collaboration tool, the Town Web Design Project Center. This gives both parties full transparency into the new project.
We then jumped into action and started copying all relevant content from the old site for consideration, and building out the structure of the new site based on feedback from Tombstone's stakeholders.

Our team had a delightful time working on the City of Tombstone's Municipal Website Design project. The photos that the City of Tombstone staff sent for us to use in their project provided us with an interesting window into the historical importance of the Wild West and the role that Tombstone played.
"Our training went very well and your site seems so much easier to post to than our old site. We wish to thank you for all your hard work that you put into this to make this possible for us."
"It is good to know that you and your team are available for any questions or help that we might need. We never had support like that before! Again thank you and we look forward to working more with you."
Regina Duran, Clerk
Armando Villa, Council member

In the mid-1880s, Tombstone was considered one of the fastest populating cities.
The event that puts Tombstone in the history books is the famed gun fight at OK Corral, but which actually occurred in a vacant lot on Fremont Street. On October 26, 1881, there was a big shootout between members of the "Cowboys" and the Earp brothers and Doc Holliday. It was a short fight, lasting only about 24 seconds, but 30 shots were fired and Billy Clanton, Tom & Fank McLaury were mortally wounded.
Nowadays the City of Tombstone is home to about 1500 residents, and the heritage of the Wild Wild West is preserved in this historic city.[/vc_column_text][vc_cta_button2 h2="Are you in a similar situation as the City of Tombstone?" style="rounded" txt_align="left" title="Text on the button" btn_style="rounded" color="turquoise" size="lg" position="right"][/vc_cta_button2][vc_button2 title="Want a Formal Quote?
