The website design and development team at Innov8t enjoy working with clients from all sectors medical, legal, sport, leisure, hospitality, environmental, transport, creative arts to name a few.
We meet clients with a very specific and special request and most recently we met Eileen McArdle who runs The Friends of Liam Foundation. Eileen wanted an originally designed website that would reflect the values and hard work of The Friends of Liam Foundation, tell Liam’s story, help the general public understand DIPG and help raise funds to support families and children with special needs and children diagnosed with cancer.
The website design had to be functional and include the main messages including Liam’s Story, Who We Are, Our Vision, Gallery, Events, Join Us, Donations and Contact and each were given equal prominence in the standard navigation bar.
All monies raised by The Friends of Liam Foundation is used for good causes so donations are obviously very important in order to help them continue their great work.
With this in mind we created an icon for donations that was prominent and also moves while visitors to the website scroll the homepage. This keeps any visitor to the website reminded that they can donate quickly and easily to support the great work of The Friends of Liam Foundation.
The overall design was based around what were told about Liam and in particular how he loved sailing and being around boats. With this mind we animated the logo so it looks like the boy in the boat is sailing and generally having a good time. As part of the Vision of The Friends of Liam Foundation they mention “We believe every child should reach their potential and we believe it is possible and achievable” and here at innov8t we echo that sentiment.
On completion of the project Eileen told the Innov8t she felt that the design captured Liam’s personality and for that we are both delighted and humbled.
Please take 5 minutes out of your day to visit the site and better still donate or get involved.
