Award Winning Website for North Ayrshire Council

17.10.14

We've been wagging our tails at BBD, following the national recognition in the form of a COSLA Gold Excellence Award for a joint project between North Ayrshire Council and BBD Creative to provide an innovative new Community Portal.

The CareNA website connects people choosing support and care with those who provide it allowing them to make the most of their care and options. The fully responsive website has been designed to be accessible to W3C guidelines using big buttons and simple imagery as well as a focused user-journey. The site includes sections for events, community groups and leisure opportunities in communities as well as listings of providers listing details of what they do and where, ensuring that people who receive social care can easily access information to make informed choices about their support.

We were careful to design the site around the users' needs, utilising colour, specially designed characters and easy to use, call to action buttons that maximise the user experience. Always central to our design was the fact that users of all ages and abilities would be relying on the CareNA website for important information that would impact their daily lives.

Winning the top COSLA Award was great, but most importantly, we are proud to have delivered a much needed digital solution that will have a positive affect on peoples lives.
