We worked with the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) to merge their four websites into one – a hub allows users to search for any title the BBFC have classified, a film library of approximately 400,000 titles. The site is built using the Drupal 7 platform which integrates with the BBFC’s internal systems so that when they classify new titles they automatically appear on the website. The design also possesses adaptive characteristics which means the sit layout changes for tablet and mobile users. We also recently developed the CBBFC – a quirkier, more colourful model which guides children through how films in the UK are regulated, and also gives them the opportunity to grade a film trailer themselves.
TMF Group is a global business outsourcing company that enables its clients to operate corporate structures, finance vehicles and investment funds across the world. Reading Room worked with TMF Group to define a clear future-proof digital strategy including the redevelopment of tmf-group.com as a global super-site alongside an SEO strategy to gain top listings in search engine results pages within target keywords and search phrases. Through innovative and engaging design which differentiates TMF Group from its competitors, whilst still being acceptable within the professional services environment, we developed a rich and clean website which enables TMF Group to raise its profile by reflecting its status as a global industry-leading provider of outsourcing services.
We worked alongside Visit England and Aardman to create a spectacularly designed site for the Wallace and Gromit ‘Great Adventure’ campaign, aimed at boosting domestic tourism and showing users why holidays at home in the UK are great. Through intelligent, structured content, we were able to implement an open source solution to deliver the right results in a memorable, seamless fashion, which also includes an extensive social media strategy. To tie in with the television advert, the site possesses a range of fun and useful tools, such as a holiday ideas generator, to help launch users on their Great British Adventure.
Reputations and Relationships are key to Lewis Silkin and the new website embraces this. The site is intended to build strong and lasting relationships with clients – a dynamic portal where they can begin conversations with new prospects and demonstrate the breadth and depth of their expertise. By tailoring content, social media, events and publications around the profiles of the lawyers and the sectors that the organisation works in, we have successfully showcased the expert knowledge of Lewis Silkin, and helped to reinforce their brand identity.
Reading Room worked hard redeveloping The Help for Heroes website, a project that included the introduction of an eloquent navigation system to help shift the organisation away from a previously cluttered, non-user friendly content architecture, and help boost donations to the charity. Built in Umbraco, it provides users with comprehensive website search functionality and allows Help for Heroes to seamlessly integrate other important digital channels, such as social media, an online store and donation pages. The website also optimises content for viewing across mobile and tablet devices, whilst operationally, the charity only has to manage a single content platform.
Teenage Cancer Trust is a charity devoted to making a difference to teenagers and young adults across the United Kingdom who are currently living with cancer. They take a hands-on approach, pooling their resources and expertise for the benefit of educating and, ultimately, treating young people. Reading Room worked with Teenage Cancer Trust to develop a new digital strategy for their website – something which would endorse their vision of a “future where young people’s lives don’t stop because they have cancer.” We guided the planning and execution of their new web presence, which included building an innovative website that is engaging, useful and relevant.
Personal finances are one of the biggest causes of non-combat stress for both current and former military personnel. In one of our most innovative projects to date, Reading Room had the privilege of developing the MoneyForce website – a user centric, interactive resource which allows users to manage their money online and gain access to sound financial advice. As well as being supported by Dame Kelly Holmes, MoneyForce is funded by Standard Life Charitable Trust, and run in partnership with the Ministry of Defence and the Royal British Legion. It was developed in partnership with the Money Advice Service, an independent government organisation that helps people make the most of their money.
Reading Room were sought out by Ministry of Justice to ensure their online tool, the Legal Aid eligibility calculator, was fit for purpose, and in particular, suitable for mobile channels. This tool is one of the first key pieces of functionality to transfer to the new Gov.uk site. Our testing reaffirmed Gov.uk’s radical design from a user’s perspective – mere months before gov.uk brushed off competition from the categories of fashion, furniture and architecture, to win the prestigious design of the year award.
Built in Umbraco, the new website offers support to both tenants and landlords, aiming to help resolve their disputes, whilst also educating them on how to avoid future disagreements. Developed following a legislation change, the purpose of the website is to effectively communicate the role and remit of the Housing Ombudsman Service (HOS) as an aide and mediator – but also a central “hub” of standardised information on dispute resolution and best practice. The new site provides landlords with the capability to manage their cases more efficiently, whilst also guiding tenants to the appropriate services. We overhauled the entire user experience by adding a text size adjuster, and incorporating more imagery and videos to involve and engage more effectively with users.
