Sands website redesign and redevelopment

Our challenge:

Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity, wanted a website that was attractive, user-friendly and navigable. Crucially, they needed to create clearly defined journeys for their three core audiences: those people who need support, those who need information and those who want to help.


The story:

As with many smaller and medium-sized charities, Sands website had grown organically, with content added sporadically as and when required. This resulted in a lack of identity and focus, with users sometimes struggling to find the information they needed.


We restructured the website in a navigable, user-friendly way – capitalising on SEO, whilst providing Sands with a fresh, modern, responsive design for it’s users.


The technology:

The website was built on the Drupal Content Management System.


The features incorporated included:
