The Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) is responsible for the regulation of ocean-borne transportation in the foreign commerce of the United States. Americaneagle.com recognized that the redesign of the FMC website had to be compliant with all applicable standards and guidelines for federal government websites and adhere to industry-standard design guidelines. All sections of the site were designed with a graphically pleasing yet streamlined look to ensure quick download time and easy access to the content. AE worked with FMC to structure an intuitive design and layout approach to focus the user on core messages, and to establish paths through the site content. Americaneagle.com recognized the importance of popular pages, such as the Electronic Reading Room, and kept this at the forefront during the website redesign process. A navigation menu was also developed in a way that enables users to find information quickly and easily. Information is presented in a hierarchy, enabling visitors to “drill down” to find increasingly detailed information. The revamped site design offers a user-friendly experience, effectively communicates the FMC’s offerings, and opens communication channels for the FMC user base.
