Started in 1980, The National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project began as a one-day celebration of energy education when National Energy Education Day was recognized by a Joint Congressional Resolution. The organization has seen a lot of history from a unique perspective. NEED approached pondSoup as promoting their events and managing their website had become unwieldy. To paraphrase from our first meeting, "Our web guys always tell us 'no'."
pondSoup doesn't say "no," to a fault. Another relationship wet with the dew that allows it to blossom. Or, our proposal looked the best.
We took their main website (need.org) off a proprietary content management system and moved it to WordPress, redesigning along the way. We added and modified their sitemap and information architecture as THEY wanted, not as their system dictated. And when we launched, they were so pleased we continue to maintain and add to need.org, as well as bringing other web properties for their programs, partners, and sponsors under our auspices.
