Elevated Third Announces Launch of New Colorado OEDIT Site


Denver, Colorado - August 30, 2012 - Denver digital marketing agency Elevated Third this month announced the launch of a new website for the state of Colorado’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT). The digital agency is also soon to finish its second site project with OEDIT for Colorado Creative Industries, an OEDIT division focused on economic growth through creative job support and creation.

Advancecolorado.com went live on August 3rd, and is part of the state of Colorado’s ongoing efforts to increase awareness and community support surrounding the business climate of Colorado. The site features robust designs and intuitive functionality-- each of which focus on OEDIT’s diverse group of audiences and initiatives for statewide economic growth.

“Our refreshed OEDIT website is an effective communications tool, offering real-time information that is relevant to businesses that are coming to or expanding in Colorado,” said Michelle Bechamps, OEDIT Brand Manager. “Elevated Third’s team worked efficiently side-by-side with our team to see this tool come to life.”

In the website redesign, OEDIT required that its new site provide an easy solution for faster turnaround for content updates and changes. Elevated Third created a new site with robust designs and user-friendly functionality, and is organized to serve the needs of each of the site’s diverse user groups (including Colorado citizens and community members, small businesses seeking funding and grant information, site selection consultants, those interested in international trade, other Colorado state departments and more).

Elevated Third expects to launch the Colorado Creative Industries website in early fall of this year. The site will showcase branding, design and development from the creative and development teams at Elevated Third. Founded in 1967, Colorado Creative Industries is a collective of the former Colorado Council on the Arts, the Office of Film, Television and Media and the Arts in Public Places Program. The OEDIT division is structured to promote, support and expand the creative industries of Colorado, drive the state economy, grow jobs and enhance overall quality of life.

OEDIT selected Elevated Third as a web strategy partner due to the digital agency’s high-level approach to design and development. The agency is known for leveraging its strategic design processes of information architecture and creative design with open-source content management system Drupal, and continues to excel due to their unique and competitive approach to digital strategy across various industries and technological platforms.
