Disability Services Website
Rocky Bay is a leading provider of disability services, offering choice and independence to thousands of people of all ages living with physical or intellectual disability in WA.
Media on Mars were delighted to be selected to create the website for Rocky Bay. They needed a website that told their story and showcased their state-of-the-art facilities. It needed to be warm and inviting and most importantly it needed to attract new clients to choose Rocky Bay – changes in legislation mean that individual people with disabilities choose their provider, making it all the more important for Rocky Bay to have a great online presence.
We worked in partnership with Rocky Bay to define an appropriate strategy and plan for the website, long before we started the design. This involved three workshops with staff and stakeholders to work through the website structure. Given the complexity of the Rocky Bay site it was imperative that staff were involved in the process.
We created an interactive wireframe so that staff and stakeholders could see how their individual areas were represented and how they fitted in the navigation. Once the wireframes were complete we began work on the design.
The challenge in designing the Rocky Bay website was the sheer amount of information.
By integrating video into the website Rocky Bay are able to convey the human side of their organisation.
Many videos are integrated throughout the site. Rocky Bay offer a seemingly endless array of support and services to members of the community and the challenge was to convey this extraordinary feat to the user without diluting the Rocky Bay message. From client stories to raising disability awareness, video has been a powerful tool in the Rocky Bay journey.
The website design also features beautiful images of the centre and clients taken by Frances Andrijich that give the website a warm and inviting tone.
We are very proud of this website as we feel it truly captures the essence of Rocky Bay and all the great work that is done there.
“Media on Mars took on the massive challenge of designing a content heavy website and making it look crisp and clean with plenty of white space. We absolutely love the final look and feel of the final product and found them to be very willing to go above and beyond to meet our expectations. ”
