We are pleased to announce that Bi-State Development Agency has awarded Roundedcube the contract to redesign the Gateway Arch website. The project, starting this summer, will also incorporate a brand identity effort by local creative strategy and branding agency, Dovetail.
As St. Louis nears the 50th anniversary of the iconic Gateway Arch, Roundedcube is exceptionally proud and enthused about working on a project that greatly impacts our city. "As a St. Louis-based company looking to bolster our local presence, it doesn't get any bigger than this – to have such a central role in promoting the symbol of our city," said Aaron Branson, Chief Marketing Officer of Roundedcube.
The initiative to enhance the digital experience of the Gateway Arch is one way that the city of St. Louis is making strides to improve the entire experience of visiting the national monument, for both visitors and St. Louis residents, in 2015 and 2016. Through business development, unique partnerships, projects such as CityArchRiver 2015 and the anticipated new gatewayarch.com, St. Louis has great plans to enhance the Gateway Arch Riverfront experience. "The new website is going to be a key component to serving our visitors and communicating the best way to get around during construction," said Karen Bollinger, Director of Sales and Marketing, Bi-State Development Agency, Business Enterprises. "Moving forward into the 50th anniversary celebration, the digital experience will complement the physical experience at the new Arch grounds."
The Bi-State Development Agency/Metro (BSDA/Metro) owns and operates St. Louis Downtown Airport and its surrounding industrial business park, and the Gateway Arch Riverboats, as well as operates the Gateway Arch Revenue Collections Center, the Gateway Arch Transportation System, and the Gateway Arch Parking Facility.
BSDA/Metro is also the operator of the Metro public transportation system for the St. Louis region, which includes the 87 vehicle, 46-mile MetroLink light rail system; 375 MetroBus vehicle fleet that operates on 75 MetroBus routes; and Metro Call-A-Ride, a paratransit fleet of 120 vans.
