Project:  Website Redesign

Client: Piedmont Electric



We’ve worked with Piedmont Electric since early 2013. We write and design two monthly newsletters, one for customers and one for employees. We also help Piedmont with a variety of other communication efforts including:

  • Annual Report
  • Speech Writing
  • Preparation and presentation materials for the company’s annual meeting
  • Monthly billing inserts

In mid-2013, Piedmont approached us to help redesign their website. The old website was build on a proprietary platform which made content updates and layout changes time consuming and cumbersome.

The goals of our web redesign included:

  • migration to WordPress
  • integration with Piedmont’s social media accounts
  • implementation & training on easy-to-use tools that would allow Piedmont staff to add new content

In addition, we created a set of templates and a process that would allow Piedmont to quickly publish updates about power outages during severe weather events like ice storms, thunder storms and hurricanes.

We also linked a custom login form from Piedmont’s public-facing WordPress site to company’s password-protected online account management portal that customers use to pay their bills and manage their account.
