- Website launched at the 14th Annual Child Mental Health Research Network Day
- Rebrand from Lime Trees Research to COMIC including logo development
- COMIC team can now easily add content to the website and update their Research information
The research team were looking to re-brand from Lime Trees Research to COMIC, which required logo development and a new website. They had found it difficult to update their old website, and needed to be able to add content about the research that is undertaken by the COMIC team.
The design of the website matched the brief of ”fresh and friendly” as the work of COMIC is focused on children. We chose and designed appropriate graphics, colours and fonts, and the website is responsive for mobile and tablets.
We visited the COMIC team in York to discuss the initial brief and then again with design mock-ups that were presented to the team.
The COMIC team needed to be able to update existing and add new research projects to the website themselves. PCM developed a website with an easy to use, comprehensive back-end Content Management System (CMS) and then delivered on-site training for the team.
The COMIC website was launched at the 14th Annual Child Mental Health Research Network Day with a great response from the attendees.
The website includes video embedding so that the COMIC team can also add British Sign Language (BSL) videos to the website.
The website fits the brief from the COMIC team of having an online resource that they can direct users to. In addition, through a combination of SEO-friendly website development, regularly updated content from the COMIC team, and quality backlinks from websites referencing their work, we expect the COMIC website to improve search engine rankings within the next 3-6 months.
