With their Total Response Call Handling System and Dispatch U Continuing Education Service, PowerPhone is setting the bar for public safety communication training and technology. Their new website will allow them to reach more dispatchers and emergency service dispatch centers, resulting in more capable and confident throughout the United States.
We have created PowerPhone’s brochures for print, updated staff headshots, and all of the open graph images for social media. The new website features SVG animations, designed by myself and animated by Jackie D’Elia, as well as custom SVG icons and all new product explainer and intro videos. Their new website meets basic accessibility standards, and is fully mobile responsive. Additionally, we also transformed their old web presence from a very confusing and difficult-to-navigate brochure-style site to a marketing-driven, Call-to-Action based website with updated navigation, styling, and visuals.
