With global initiatives, events, news updates, as well as an active Twitter feed to connect users on a global scale, it is vital that the site can perform even in areas of low data connectivity. WDG worked hard to provide a mobile responsive site for the World Movement for Democracy.

Developing global reach through flexible content.

WDG incorporated global taxonomies and created 8 templates with over 20 different layouts. In deploying the site, the private backend data was used to fuel the filtering and provide data about the individuals, networks, global participants, and activists. The body of content was used to fuel the News and Alerts, and the private end data was pulled into the flex modules to be displayed on pages

Intuitive information architecture streamlines the overall site structure with improved taxonomies.

The proactive messaging instituted across the World Movement for Democracy’s reinvigorated site allows users to engage more efficiently and directly with the organization. The “News & Alerts” section leverages targeted social media integrations, specifically incorporating the organization’s highly recognizable Twitter feed across the site.

Our team facilitated integration points with real-time updates using the Twitter Feed Pro plugin. The page also contains easily located Featured News stories and filterable results with faceted search by Region, Country, and Topics for a better user experience.
