As well as the website design work I do at kc web design kent I also work with a number of other large companies as a website design consultant and project designer. One recent website design project I was involved with was on a series of projects for the CIOB (Chartered Institute of Building). As well as designing banners and other promotional material I was asked to re-design the Carbon Action 2050 website with our partner company – Hydrant.
Hydrant were the project leaders, I designed the website and it was built by CIOB dev team (i01). Not quite the unified team I’m used to working in and not being able to have a hand in the development of the site was very difficult (and ultimately I think it effected the final product) but all in all it was a great website design project to work on.
The new Carbon Action 2050 website is an important website for the construction industry pushing the boundaries of what can be done to make the building industry more eco-friendly…
The CIOB Carbon Action 2050 toolkit is an action plan of simple, practical steps that can be taken by the Institute, its members and the wider construction industry to reduce carbon emissions from the built environment. Now. Anywhere in the world.
The Carbon Action 2050 website was designed to make the information more engaging and create a sense of value to the information. Reducing carbon emissions in the construction industry is an important mission and so the website design needed to be in keeping with the CIOB global styles but also offer a unique identity of its own while making the wealth of information easy to find and read.
The website is responsive and works on all mobile devices although the exact implementation of this wasn’t carried out by Hydrant or myself.
