The little town of Fort Atkinson, Iowa is a quiet gem hidden in Northeast Iowa. The 2018 website redesign worked to drawn people to this beautiful community. With striking photos of the historic fort and the people that fill the community, it’s hard to believe the town is a well-kept secret. The design of the website needed to convey this town’s historic significance for tourists while making it easy for residents to find necessary information.
The town’s main attraction, Rendezvous Days, takes place every September. It was imperative to website organizers that information for the upcoming festival was easily found by site visitors. A simple scroll down the home page uncovers information about the upcoming festival.
The final design allows history to spring off the pages of the site.
