Searching for a hub for the regenerative community movement. 

21st Century Development (21CD) is a model for the creation of regenerative communities—communities that strive to provide a healthy environment for all people and living systems now and in a dynamic future. Professionals from architecture, engineering, and other fields are partnering with public officials, private sector, and nonprofit leaders to bring 21CD concepts to life around the world.

As part of their 2018 launch, 21CD realized they needed a way to spread the word about their organization and their progressive model for building regenerative communities. They had envisioned a website that would clearly organize their concepts, learnings, and case studies for innovative community development. That website would eventually become the central digital hub for all involved in their movement. 21CD engaged LN Design Co, an Emergent Software Web Design Partner, to construct a clear user experience for their website visitors. Emergent Software worked closely with LN Design Co and 21CD to bring their website vision to life.

A beautifully intuitive brochure website. 

The team had to get creative with the schedule for this project as 21CD needed the site to be fully built within eight weeks to unveil their work at a major trade show. Emergent selected Umbraco for the site’s Content Management System, which enabled the team to quickly build a framework for the site and get a draft into the client’s hands, which allowed them to add their years’ worth of research and case studies into the website as quickly as possible. It only took LN Design Co and Emergent Software about a month to get a draft of the site into content editors’ hands, and a month later it was capturing audiences at their trade show.
