GPO: Designer of Government Websites


The Government Publishing Office announced yesterday that it has designed the Department of Commerce’s new Web site.


GPO designer Jon Raedeke collaborated with Commerce’s Chief Information Officer’s team on this project. GPO was responsible for designing the user-friendly, mobile-optimized Web site that also serves as a platform to be used by other Commerce entities. Commerce came to GPO for design services based on GPO’s reputation for designing other Government Web sites, such as the Library of Congress’ Open World site, the Commerce’s Stop Fakes site, and the United States China Commission site. GPO was also able to provide Commerce with a Government-to-Government service solution that streamlined the Web site design process.

Although GPO has developed and designed agency websites for more than a decade, this was its most complex and prominent website redesign project yet, according to Bruce Seger, managing director of customer services at GPO.

GPO is currently in the process of working on two more federal agency websites: one for the National Council on Disability and another for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of Marine and Aviation Operations.
