Radford Care Group

Brand & website development

Background

Radford Care Group is a registered charity that offers daytime activities for older people in Nottingham, with extended facilities for those with more specialist needs. It also facilitates organised activities such as exercise sessions, arts and crafts classes, guest speakers, entertainment, short and long day trips out, as well as linking up with other support services.

The management team was preparing to move to its brand-new facility called Prospect Street and wanted to refresh its branding and website to reflect this new chapter.

Step one - audit

The original website was set up in a blog based format which meant that the page design was very restricted, with the template preventing the use of numerous images and requiring large volumes of text. This made it difficult for the team to showcase the people behind the non-profit organisation and the amazing work they do to support older people in their local community. It also meant that the right information for family members looking to access the services was often missing. The brand was also very limited in that it didn’t have a very varied colour palette which prevented their collateral and website from looking engaging and drawing the eye to key information or calls to action.

Step two - colour palette

 

We recommended that Radford Care Group modernise its colour palette to bring it in line with the branding for Prospect Street. We also advised that they expand the colour palette with contrasting but complementary turquoise, grey and blue. The colours are calm and friendly to reflect the work they do to offer sanctuary and care for older people and their families. We also incorporated a san serif font to accent key messages and titles.

Step three - website build

We created a modern website that was visually led, easy to navigate and employed simple language to appeal to carers and families looking for a supportive environment.
