The truth is, matters of life and death remain a topic of controversy for many of us in the UK.
We’re a long way off before removing the stigma attached to one of life’s most natural occurrences – what happens when we die. But, as Life & Death Matters highlight, failure to plan for such things can cause incredible amounts of undue stress for those involved.
From wills and power of attorney to estate planning and probate – these things unfortunately don’t magically disappear when somebody we love dies. And that’s where our client comes in.
Here’s how we turned their web design brief into something special.
It was an honour to work with our client on his website re-design, given his own experiences with planning for life after the death of a parent. Our client wanted a website that was jargon-free, modern, and refreshing. Above all, this was to be a website that was unlike any other in the industry.
Many of us have been here before when looking for advice following the death of a relative. Yet, when we conduct our research online, we’re bombarded by legal complexities, jargon, and frankly boring website interfaces.
It doesn’t have to be this way, and, working with our client, it was an opportunity to really change the way users experience grief and planning for what comes next.
What our web designers achieved with this project was a website that sums up what our client does: offer honest, open, and reliable death planning services.
And all this on a website that is, bright, straight to the point, and honest.
Because that’s what everybody deserves at a time when they need it most.
Designing this website, our designers wanted to get the look and feel right.
From the homepage to the contact page, our UK web design team worked with a purpose: to make design evoke a particular ‘vibe’.
For this client, the vibe had to be transparency and honesty, with an energetic interface built on unique and modern design.
On the homepage – the beginning of so many user journeys – users are met with an interface that has all this and more.
From the bright green content banners to the sketch artwork – the minimalist service sections to visible navigation buttons – this interface is built for and around every online customer, no matter what stage of the journey they are at.
Service pages are where we need to retain user attention and bring them closer to what they came here for in the first place.
On our client’s service page, our designers pretended our client’s services in a way which promotes further scrolling and engagement.
With colourful content banners and other bright design visuals, we’re really beginning to help change how users interact with – and perceive – online websites for death planning.
Contact pages need to be quick, easy and visible.
For our client, we designed a beautifully minimal contact page to facilitate communication and, ultimately, help clients move on with their lives.
