Government Whips Office – Website & Kiosk
WHAT WE DID
Minuco designed the previous Government Whip's Office website several years ago and it was due a refresh. Before commencing the redesign we questioned the logic / user flow of the original. What we presented was a streamlined version that would be both easier to navigate from a user perspective and easier for the admin to maintain and manage the online content.
The main emphasis for the new design was to enhance the clarity of key information and body text, thus making the website more accessible for a great number of elderly peers. Visually speaking, the design was also brought in line with some of the recent .gov websites.
Alongside the website, we also reworked a touch screen system peers would use to sign themselves up for debates. Simplifying the process and introducing a fresh, contemporary aesthetic in line with the website design.
The Government Whips’ Office is responsible for the management of the Government’s legislative programme in the House of Lords. The office is led by the Chief Whip who is supported by a team of Whips who are Ministers of the Crown appointed as Baronesses and Lords in Waiting. The office is part of the Cabinet Office’s Government in Parliament Group.
