Internet Design & Publishing, Inc., a Kansas City Web Design Company, completed a new website re-design project for Project One out of Denver, CO.
Project One has been a long time client of IDP. This is the second website IDP has developed for the construction project management firm based in Denver. The company was going thru some re-branding and the new website matches the new company brand. The first web design project was built on Joomla CMS software. The new KC web design project was built on WordPress content management system software. Over the last 14 years Kansas City web design company IDP has built hundreds of websites and many of them in the past were built on Joomla. Over the last 2-3 years IDP has focused on building WordPress web designs and converting over all of our old Joomla sites into WordPress sites. We prefer WordPress websites because our clients like the content management system, the software is search engine friendly, the plugins are easy to install and are pretty stable and the software updates are easy to maintain and keep secure.
The new Kansas City web design project for Project One included graphic design work, web page mockups and layouts, content development, web development, Bootstrap responsive web design, home page banner slider rotator, project photo gallery, search engine optimization and web hosting. On the Our People page we programmed a custom user interface that shows the entire team in boxes with short summaries, click to open each box to see blow up version of each employee. The company services pages we organized into separate project photo galleries for each area. Project One has completed a lot of successful, impressive projects and we wanted to feature them all. We ended up building out over 50 project photo galleries. Each of the sub pages feature large banner image shots.
Project One is a project management and owner’s representation firm that provides planning, oversight and implementation services for capital construction projects. Project One works with clients to build collaborative project teams and manage successful projects from inception through completion and beyond. The new web design is clean, modern and attractive.

Domain Name Migration and Web Hosting
The new web design project also included switching domain names and web hosting. The company had always used www.projectoneis.com and wanted to switch to a new domain www.project-1.com. It can be very tricky to launch a new web site on a new domain name. You can hurt your search engine optimization. The website software was switching from Joomla to WordPress and we were switching domain names. In order to change your website address you need to setup both domain names in a Google search console account. Then you need to complete the steps provided by Google to change your web address. If you skip this part you could harm your SEO rankings and lose all of your domain reputation history. We also setup 301 re-directs to point all of the old Joomla URLs to the new WordPress URLs. The link structure was completely different and we did not want to create any 404 web page not found pages in search results so we manually setup over 50 301 re-directs pointing all of the old pages to the new pages.
