Evelyn Trust

The Evelyn Trust website was built in collaboration with freelance designer and long time collaborator George Aretakis and project managed by Jo Timson (CUH head of Corporate Communications).

The brief was to completly redesign the Trusts' website and also to create an identity to be used across all digital marketing and printed material. 

It is a relatively simple site aimed at a specific audience of healthcare researchers looking for funding. One of the key functionality requirements was to intergrate the email marketing tool Mailchimp with the site to allow interested parties to sign up to an email newsletter. Using Mailchimp has proved to be very useful. It is easy to use, and very powerful and a tool that I often recommend to clients.

Finding suitable imagery for an organistion like the Evelyn Trust can be challenging. This is where stock photo libraries come in. In this case we used iStockphoto - a cost effective way of bringing high quality imagery to a website without the need for costly and time consuming photo shoots.
