New APEX Website is Live
Wednesday, December 28, 2016
An important milestone for APEX in 2016 was updating, refreshing and refocusing the website. Through the hard work of the APEX team, partners and investor-members, the new website launched on schedule in early November. The new website has many key features to help guide visitors through the APEX region’s highlights, including a regional mapping tool and interactive modules.
“One key objective in redeveloping the site was to showcase and present a professional economic development portal, with the ability to interact in a variety of ways with each unique visitor,” stated Tamara Lowney, APEX Business Developer. Lowney led the website project for APEX.
APEX worked with Golden Shovel, an economic development-focused firm, to create the dynamic, mobile responsive website. In addition, APEX worked with and would like to thank the following investor-members:
- Kris Olberg with Sisu Healthcare IT Solutions and Pat Malley with Consolidated Communications for their extensive assistance and insight reviewing proposals and interviewing potential website development firms;
- Lisa Bodine with Giant Voices and her team for their excellent support through content development and graphic design support;
- Investor-members Itasca Economic Development Corporation, Minnesota Power, Duluth Port Authority, Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Duluth Airport Authority for providing a variety of images; and
- Partners who also provided images: Aitkin Growth, City of Cohasset, City of Nashwuak, City of Cloquet, Lake County, Bayfield County, Hibbing Regional Airport and the City of Grand Rapids
