NHS Blood and Transplant needed a way to:
Manage the look of an new content management system (CMS), that was buying applied to their entire web-estate of 12 sites.
Update the designs overtime without needing to find every instance of that change; for example, if a button was changed from being red to blue, there needed to be a way to update every instance of that button and not have to find one manually.
Create a semantic language and tone through styling; for example, every site would show a news article the same way, but would have the ability to make colour changes so that it it suited the brand it represented.
Adapt all items created to every screen-size automatically.
The first part of the process was to define what each page would need to make a great user experience. To do this I designed a set of templates giving examples of the types of components and content that would be used in each template.
I then worked with some incredible Copy Writers, Front-End and Back-End Developers to perfect the components to fit the CMS system and the content that would populate them.
We created a fast, simple and easy way for NHSBT to upload content. This component library is a fantastic foundation for the company to build upon and will save a lot of time and money.
