NMO-UK Research Foundation
This project was intended to raise awareness of this terrible disease. Clickable maps were required to a county page of every county in the UK which was to display sufferers’ stories. Advertising space needed to be incorporated on each page as well as an online grant application form. The charity also required a simple ecommerce solution.
The greatest challenge was creating a series of clickable maps and devising a solution that worked on all devices. Making the site clean and functional with essential content was also necessary.
One size does not necessarily fit all with responsive design. Clickable maps appear on the desktop site and a less image/bandwidth-heavy text link solution for tablet and mobile. Lovely clean and fresh design and simple navigation.
This site has become one of the ‘go to’ websites for information about NMO in the United Kingdom and is attracting over 2000 visits a month. Sufferers and carers are using it as a hub of information and support and the admin are using it to attract sponsorship and revenue from businesses throughout the country. Word is spread through the website to inform users of research developments and events in support of combatting NMO.
