A world-class organisation needs a world-class website
3 December 2014
Today we launch the website we’ve dreamed about!
We built this new site to be a foundation for our communication to the world. And we designed it with you in mind. We’ve rewritten the content and redesigned the structure so you can get informed and stay informed quickly and easily on whatever device you happen to be using.
Here’s a few things we’re excited to show you:
- New design that looks great on your phone, tablet or desktop and is easier to navigate.
- Melanoma glossary to define melanoma jargon.
- Treatment pages that will leave you informed but not keep you up reading all night.
- Sophisticated search function to make finding things easy.
- Blogs for patients, melanoma community news and research developments.
- Easier giving with automatic online donation receipting.
- Integration with our Facebook page and Twitter feed.
- And that’s just the beginning!
We thought our new site deserved a bright new logo too. So we designed one that remembers who we are while bringing a bright freshness that we think reflects the hope and excitement we have for the future. Is that the sun rising in the middle of our umbrella, dawning a bright new day for the future of melanoma research and care? Maybe so…
