Website Redesign RFP

The South Carolina State Museum (SCSM) is in need of redesign and replacement services for their website. They seek a vendor to provide creative, digital and website development services to design, develop and implement a secure, visually pleasing and easily navigable website. The site will remain the most important source of available information to visitors about the museum, its content and its resources.

View to see the current website at South Carolina State Museum.

Due to technology and website interface advancements since its original design in 2014, SCSM sees a need to upgrade and update from its current format. The main pain points the Museum is facing with the site are:

  • Major areas of the site can only be updated manually by changing the html code.
  • Due to the site’s age, it doesn’t offer users an adequate level of responsiveness.
  • The site is not mobile-friendly.

SCSM wants to utilize new technologies to build a site that’s easier to update regularly — eliminating the need to code. Furthermore, they would like to:

  • Incorporate virtual exhibitions and other online content
  • Make it easier for users to search for specific programs/events
  • Offer a high degree of functionality to users visiting the website from a mobile device.

The contract will cover the design, development, programming and implementation of the new website. However, the website redevelopment plan should also include recommendations for website hosting options and on how to raise the museum’s online presence through SEO.
