Expert Patients Programme web design
What did we do?
The Expert Patients (EPP) Group do good things, and we love working with people who do good things. They came to us as providers of indispensable courses that educate people regarding self-management of any long-term illnesses. The courses are run by health professionals who are survivors of long term illnesses and enable people to cope with depression, pain and everything else that comes hand in hand with serious illness. We love their whole philosophy and really, genuinely wanted to be of help to the guys who provide this brilliant service.
We completely redesigned and built a new website for the team, we took the colours used in their logo and wove them throughout each page of the site. We introduced a column structure to the design and this now highlights the individual calls to action, making a significant difference to the number of clicks the user is required to carry out in order to find the information that they need.
What did we achieve?
We simplified the appearance of content and information and created a slick, user friendly and on-brand website. Because of the nature of the work of the Expert Patients Group the user experience was a major consideration and we fully understood that the majority of users are unwell and need to find the right information quickly and without tribulation. We built the website using the Drupal platform which achieves a simple content management system (CMS) for EPP’s administrators. A CMS system that can be adopted quickly and allows for straightforward upload of content was invaluable to EPP and we made it our mission to achieve this via Drupal. We created a really valuable resource for anyone with a long-term illness, a community for sharing experiences and a forum for discussing and booking classes for those who want and need to learn how to cope and move forward with their lives.
