Centre for Policy Development

Designed for



CPD was established in 2007 as an institute for long-term policy development, in an effort to counteract the focus on short-term fixes and political gains in Australian policy making. CPD is independent and non-partisan and not affiliated with any political party.

CPD briefed Krafthaus to present CPD in a unique and professional design-focused manner that combines the organisations strong communication offerings and history of connecting and broadcasting to the stakeholders.

CPD commissioned Krafthaus to use its digital agency services to bring CPD up to speed with leading design and development trends, allowing users to easily find information they seek regardless whether they are viewing via mobile and tablet devices or on desktop.

The Technical Elements

  • Responsive design template for desktop, tablet and mobile experiences
  • Advance blogging functions for a good administrative ease of use
  • Custom sidebar and widgets
  • Easy page content building
  • eWay payment for donation
  • MailChimp subscriber integration
  • Podcast for audio integrated with Soundcloud

Additional Consideration Given

Krafthaus managed an supported CPD every step of the way to migrate their old content to the new site, newsletter subscription function and payment donation function without any downtime. We added a smart page builder in the CMS so the client can easily re-structure layout elements or create their own.
