Starting point

Following a recommendation from one of Starbit’s existing clients, Edinburgh Carers Council got in touch about updating their old WordPress website. Being a small charity they had a limited budget but were very clear on their objectives and were able to prioritise the improvements they wanted to see. Top of the list was a new structure for their content and a new simple menu system through which to access everything.

Solution

Starbit started by producing high-fidelity design mockups with a modern style and colour scheme that were inspired by the digital approaches of some of the leading health charities and support organisations in the UK. The website features a series of unique circle patterns to add to the brand identity, which are also used in the secondary menu system to give a visual cue to the more detailed content. Accessibility was also a key consideration for end-users, so a high-contrast view was added for those with visual impairments. Content management is powered by Drupal and the admin dashboard has been customised to make content editing as easy as possible for the client.

“I would highly recommend Starbit to anyone wanting a professional website design and development company. From the start I felt we were in safe hands and were presented flexible options to meet our budget and ideas. We chose a Drupal CMS and Jonathan took a thorough brief of our needs - we went with the first design presented as it was just perfect. Not only was it warm and friendly but it took into account an understanding of our main goal which was to organise information in a more clear and user-friendly way so carers could easily find information. What was once a dated and clunky homemade website is now one we couldn’t be prouder of. The post-launch support has also been excellent. Thanks again to the Starbit team.”
