Designed and built by Cambridge digital agency Ware Anthony Rust, my role was as project manager. This is a site designed to take the uncertainity and worry around coming to hospital for children. 

This was an extremely fun project to work on. We involved kids from each of the age groups from an early stage with the designers attending focus groups sessions and creating mood boards of the results. They went away and produced the characters you now see dotted around the site.

Copy writing was the biggest challenge on this site - writing for the different age groups meant employing specialists.

Ware Anthony Rust built the site in Joomla Open Source CMS. I would not recommend it. I am currently attempting secure funding to move the site into Drupal.
