New websites for the UCL Institute of Education and UCL Dementia
By Clare Kennedy, on 21 March 2016
The Digital Presence team are proud to have worked on two key UCL websites which went live in February.
The UCL Institute of Education relaunched its website recently after an ambitious project to redevelop and rebuild the site using Indigo, UCL’s responsive web design framework. Digital Presence worked closely with digital agency Nomensa and with the IOE digital team, led by Head of Marketing and Communications Clare George.
Describing the new site as a true milestone, Clare said: “The site has enabled us to take our place within UCL’s wider digital estate, and has linked us more effectively with systems and content. The project has also been one of the best examples of teamwork I’ve been involved with, including fantastic creative and technical support and guidance from Digital Presence, contributions from staff right across IOE, and incredible dedication from the IOE digital team itself. We’re already enjoying all the opportunities the new site gives us to engage more effectively with our audiences.”
Another key UCL site to go live recently is the UCL Dementia website, built by Morgan Williams from the School of Life and Medical Sciences.
As Morgan explains: “Dementia is a priority area for UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences. It was vital that we developed a clear, coherent, compelling and accessible set of web pages to serve as a gateway into the wealth of dementia-related content within UCL’s web estate. I’m very pleased with the experience of using Indigo to create these pages and with a final product that, I hope, will fully meet our users’ needs.”
The Digital Presence team also worked closely with colleagues in DARO to develop the dementia site’s fundraising pages to support the UCL Dementia Retail Partnership through which major retailers have pledged to donate the money raised by the carrier bag levy.
