The College approached Cantarus to deliver a brand-new website that was both contemporary and user-friendly. Accessibility was a key element of the project as the website had to meet very high standards. We designed a brand-new theme for the Look After Your Eyes website on WordPress, leveraging the flexible WordPress v5 Gutenberg editor and using a completely custom design which was done in-house. The new design was much more flexible and modern. We also created custom content management controls which removed the requirement to create custom images for key pages.
The new design was much more accessible in order to meet the College’s needs. We added in an ‘Accessibility options’ feature at the top of the homepage so users would have the ability to change the colour and text size of the website, depending on their own needs and preferences.
The College had noted that the ‘Find a local optometrist’ feature was highly important, so we ensured that this appeared clearly visible on the homepage and integrated with their existing member database.
