It may be a long name, but the premise is simple…”Connecting the Dots Between Education & Business”

Pacer Design Studios partnered with The Beaver County Chamber of Commerce to launch

The project is a collaborative effort tol benefit not only the local school districts, their students, and teachers, but also the business community, and reflective industries. This website is to be utilized as a resource for all questions surrounding the energy and advanced manufacturing industries.

Erica Loftus, president of The Beaver County Chamber of Commerce, had this to say about how Pacer met that challenge:

“Pacer was able to take an outline of our vision that we brought to the table and in eight weeks designed and produced the full concept of this website.

Pacer Design Studios, became my home away from home. Their office atmosphere and staff are welcoming whether it’s a face-to-face meeting or an on-the-phone conversation.”

The site was coded using responsive design.  This allows the site to morph it size to fit all size screens, including phones, tablets and desktops.  Wordpress was used as a CMS, allowing various administrators to add content.

Pacer Design Studios and the Chamber decided on a bright color scheme with a modern look and feel.  This allows the site to speak to youngsters, but the clean navigation still allows users of all experience levels to find resources on the site with ease.


Pacer also worked with Erica to create a quick and informative video to promote the site, as well as educate visitors on how to navigate and use the site.
