Client Information

Incorporated on August 5, 1925, and named after John Wellborn Martin, who served as the Governor of Florida, from 1925 to 1929, Martin County, Florida is located due North of Palm Beach County and within Florida’s Treasure Coast region. With more than 160,000 full time residents, the county encompasses vibrant communities and spectacular beauty.  

2025 marks Martin County’s Centennial. In preparation for the celebration the county reached out to Promet Source to design and develop a website that would serve as a communitywide hub for Centennial related activities, as well as a digital repository of historical images and points of interest. 

Promet has served as a trusted and collaborative partner for optimizing Martin County’s online presence, since 2016, providing ongoing support and maintenance services, as well strategic consultation, and award-winning design and development work. 

Project overview

Seeking a responsive, user-friendly, interactive, and visually appealing experience within Martin County’s Drupal CMS, Martin County had specific expectations for its Centennial website. 

Key among them: 

  • The website needed to reflect the historical significance of the county’s historical milestone.
  • It needed to serve as a centralized digital hub for drawing community members into the celebration while promoting an appreciation of the county’s unique history. 
  • The site needed to be ADA compliant – in alignment with WCAG 2.2 AA standards.
  • Multiple image types, such at TIFF, JPEG, and PNG files, needed to be easily uploaded.
  • Content editors and site administrators needed to be able to easily add pages, revise layouts, and make updates, as needed.
  • The site needed to effectively promote the the official social media hashtag for Martin County’s Centennial celebration – #martincounty100. 

The launch strategy for the site incorporated a soft launch during the first quarter of 2024. Holding some features back and “Coming Soon” messaging is intended to draw community members back to the site and encourage contributions of postcards, archival images, documents, and oral histories. 

During 2025, the site will serve as the central communications hub for a wide range of events and celebrations sponsored by local businesses and community non-profits.
