Recently, Bridge the Gap Media was hired by the National Institute of Standards and Technology MML division. The NIST, Material Measurement Laboratory was looking for a vendor to develop a website and to build a custom PDF that would deliver the division’s 5 year strategic plan.
Some of the goals and other specifics about this project were:
- Create a website and PDF that would properly represent MML’s brand, vision and mission.
- Help lead organizational change and create excitement by creatively delivering the NIST MML brand message.
- Partner with a vendor that had been in web development and the communications business for a minimum of 5 years.
- Build the website on a mobile friendly platform, so it would look great on all devices, including mobile phones, tablets and desktops.
- Incorporate contemporary standards of design and usability in both the website and the PDF
- Develop the website on an intuitive content management system for MML’s staff to easily update. We suggested multiple options and eventually built the site on Drupal, which they were familiar with.
After a competitive process, NIST selected Bridge the Gap Media as the website development partner for this government project. Established in September of 2009, Bridge the Gap Media is a small business contractor to both the government and private sector, with a focus on Internet Publishing and Broadcasting and Web Search Portals. On this project we partnered with one of our web development partners Chris Foss and his team at Ironistic. Established in 2012, Ironistic is a woman owned small business with experience developing Drupal-based government websites.
The project was completed on-time and on budget, and the development and design process went smoothly. The client is extremely pleased with the website and the PDF. You can see the website here National Institute of Standards and Technology MML division.
