Mojave Max Website for Clark County Desert Conservation Program

Mojave Max cartoon characterClark County Desert Conservation Program (CCDCP) and its partners needed a modern interactive website with a new brand style to teach people about native desert species, and how to safely explore, protect, and enjoy the local desert environment. Mojave Max is a desert tortoise who is used as a vehicle for training school age children as well as the general public. Every year the Clark County Desert Conservation Program holds a contest for people to guess the date that Max will emerge from his brumation.

Our Game Plan

Zee Designs determined the best way to reorganize their content, showcase the content with a new brand style, offer their staff a way to edit their content in a sophisticated CMS, and engage their website visitors.

The Outcome

The website is vibrant and alive, with colorful photos and easy-to-navigate forms for entering the contest or contacting the Clark County Desert Conservation program. Everywhere you look on the website, there are things to do and information that is helpful including:

In addition, CCDCP were looking for a way to engage children and requested Zee Designs to develop a custom solution.
