NMC Designs Site for Jon Cardin's Campaign for Maryland Attorney General Position
New Media Campaigns is proud to announce a new website launch for Maryland Attorney General Candidate Jon Cardin. Cardin is currently serving in the Maryland House of Delegates and he is well-known for his introduction of Grace’s Law. Grace’s Law addressed cyberbullying, an issue that is particularly important to Cardin, and the law made it a misdemeanor to repeatedly bully a minor by means of a computer or smartphone.
Cardin’s campaign team approached NMC with the goal of creating a site where current and potential voters, supporters, and donors would be able to learn more about the Cardin. The organization of the site makes navigation easy, while the site design makes navigation enjoyable.
A landing page featuring a video of Cardin announcing his decision to run for Maryland Attorney General greets visitors, and then visitors can continue to the homepage. While the homepage has a classic menu, all of the most crucial pieces of information can also be found by scrolling down. This, paired with the site’s responsive design, creates a seamless browsing experience for those using smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. Standout features of the site include a news feed, a media page with a video feed, and a photo feed that pulls photos directly from the campaign’s Flickr account. Links to social media pages, and direct links to a donation page are also featured on the homepage.
For the site’s design, the Cardin campaign consulted NMC to come up with a site that was clean, bright, and featured red, white, and blue as accent colors to match the candidate's logo. Bright shades of these colors, vivid images/videos, and bold text can be found throughout the site.
As with other political websites NMC has created in the past, Jon Cardin’s site was built on the Hifi Content Management System. This will allow the campaign team to easily update the site throughout the campaign process. NMC is confident that this site will enable Cardin and his campaign team to effectively reach their electorate.
