The new website was created by capitalizing on modern technology and design conventions to allow for an organic browsing experience. The Urban Emu design team used contemporary techniques in applying typography, imagery, color, and space to breathe new life into the pages and features of the site. Each section of the site was carefully designed to ensure that the intent of the content was represented accurately, down to the most nuanced detail.
The next-generation MyPlate.gov website included a new Drupal 8 infrastructure, created to maximize administrative capabilities and site performance. The website was developed in compliance with 508 guidelines, is fully responsive, and supports all major browsers.
