Pixelwave Website Design has recently finished work on a brand new website for the The Association for Human Pharmacology in the Pharmaceutical Industry (AHPPI).
Their new website is intended as a promotional tool for the AHPPI and a information point for members of the Association. In addition to providing information on the AHPPI and its activities, the website will allow members access to information relating to meetings and conferences and the ability to share documentation. The intention of the website is to provide information and stimulate interest in the AHPPI and to encourage new membership.
Pixelwave Web Design has been involved on every level of the design of this website, from the initial concept through organising the content through to the design and construction. The website has a simple organisation to facilitate ease of use and navigation and has been built around a web-based content management system allowing the clients to update and add to the website on a regular basis.
It is important to develop a clear, understandable information architecture that will be intuitive for visitors to the site and site administrators alike. This not only makes the website easy to navigate and allows visitors to easily find the content they require, but it also aids maintenance and helps give a clear understanding of the sites objectives. Pixelwave Web Design discussed such issues with the clients to help them develop a suitable information architecture for the website.
The overall look and feel of the website is professional, clean and ‘business-like’. Design elements have been kept to a minimum and the text is easy to read and accessible.
The site how now been live for a few weeks and despite being self-confessed techno-phobes the administrators have been adding and editing content without any problems. The site has been well received by both visitors to the sites and AHPPI members.
