Black Bear Design, an award-winning Atlanta-based website design and digital marketing agency, is proud to announce the launch of the entirely revamped and recharged website for their client, Dragon Con, just in time for the 2019 convention over Labor Day Weekend.
From the start, Dragon Con’s website rebuild presented a wide array of challenges that the Black Bear team was excited to tackle head-on. The website generates more than 500,000 unique visitors each day during peak months so it was crucial that the user experience was not impacted during the redesign. There were also dozens of pages that had to be rewritten, restructured, and reformatted onto a modern, sleek WordPress platform, all while maintaining strong SEO value and an attractive functionality.
“At Black Bear Design, our focus has always been grounded in providing solutions to current website or marketing problems our clients face within a variety of industries,” said Jena S. Dunham, Managing Partner and Vice President of Operations for Black Bear. “We believe Dragon Con’s website build is a clear example of beautiful, functional, thoughtful, and elevated design. It is a showpiece, and one our agency will be proud to have built for years to come.”
“From the beginning, we wanted to approach the redesign with the goal of bringing the site up to the standards of a modern pop culture convention: responsive design and great photography with an increased focus on typography and usability,” said Tony Price, director of web development. “These aspects — when combined with fresh, updated content highlighting new guests as well as event information, hotel, travel, and charity details — achieve this goal and then some.”
As Dragon Con experienced firsthand, Black Bear Design listens to clients, understands their needs and wants, and effectively executes on a sound strategy.
“We are delighted with our new website. It tells the full story of Dragon Con and what fans can expect at this year’s convention in an attractive, easy to navigate way,” said Convention Co-chair Rachel Reeves. “The Black Bear team did a great job of understanding our needs and working to make sure all of our goals were met.”
