New 3CDC website features more photography, projects

Stanard Design Partners and Atlas Design & Technology have unveiled a redesigned website for Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC), with bold photographs of the City's urban core and a special emphasis on the non-profit's development projects.

A "Newsroom" feature highlights the appearance of 3CDC's projects in local and national news outlets, and an "About Us" section allows users to peruse the organization's monthly reports and membership.

"What we wanted the new site to catch most of all was the vision of Cincinnati that 3CDC embodies – not just the vision of what Cincinnati could be tomorrow, but what it is today – a city with a thriving and vibrant urban heart," says Cynthia Stanard, design partner at Stanard Design.

Many of 3CDC¹s success stories, including the redeveloped Fountain Square and Gateway Quarter, and future projects, like the redesigned Washington Park, are prominently displayed.

"Seeing what 3CDC has already done, and what's in development, makes me very excited for the direction Cincinnati is headed in," says Davis Stanard, design partner at Stanard Design. "And we're proud to be playing a role in that."

Mount Washington-based Stanard Design Partners is best known for developing, but has also created projects for companies such as Kao Brands and Lasik Plus; Atlas Design & Technology, located in Green Township, has developed websites for Taste Cincinnati Magazine, and the Walton Verona Independent Schools, among others.

Both firms recently collaborated to create a new website for the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau.
