Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center is a newly constructed exhibit hall to showcase and display information about the Sanford Lab Underground Research Facility, the city of Lead, and the history of the Homestake Mine through historic photographs, videos, science and mining artifacts, and a 3-D model of the underground—from the surface down to the 8,000-foot level!
Challenge

When Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center's brand new, state-of-the-art facility was being built, the time was right for a new, modern, responsive website.

Solution

In record time, Digital Designs created a custom website with a clean, modern design to match stunning architecture of the new building. Starting with a simple content structure and fully editable website backend, we partnered to launch a top quality product in time for grand opening with capacity for future expansion. The site allows the Visitor Center to spread the word about their educational opportunities, tour schedules, rental spaces, and more!

The team was very easy to work with, deadlines were met and communication along the way was prompt and well organized.

I had never worked on a website before and don’t consider myself very technical, so I was nervous at the start. The process with Digital Designs was much easier than I expected it to be. Their design ideas were great, so we didn’t have to spend a lot of time going back and forth during development, which helped us get done ahead of schedule. We especially liked how our new site looks great on both PC and mobile device, and how we can easily make changes ourselves to keep the content current. The team was very easy to work with, deadlines were met and communication along the way was prompt and well organized. We would look forward to working with them again.
