City of Rivière-du-Loup


A unique portal for a unique city

Following Locomotive’s win of the City of Rivière-du-Loup call for tenders, the team took on a complete redesign of the city’s portal. Having the experience of many of Québec’s towns and cities under its belt, the agency brought the vision and knowhow acquired over the years into play.

Intuitive zoning and a fluid experience

Each portal is different. There are similar requirements but each city must be represented in a distinct manner throughout its website. Always wanting to go one better, the Locomotive team proposed a unique zoning concept: a corner button that’s always there for the user, a singular and intuitive action that gives access to all the platform’s tools in a single click.

Simplified content architecture

Locomotive proposed simplified content architecture to better guide the user in his search for information. A keyword search tool, an interactive map and an event calendar were also created to offer each citizen, visitor or investor an enjoyable and personalized experience suited to their interests.

An efficient content manager

Charcoal CMS, our own open-source content manager, was used to give the city full control. This system gives the administrator an intuitive and customized interface according to the different tools provided, and efficient code based on proven technologies such as Symfony.
