The Bournemouth-based agency’s expertise in user experience (UX) insights and user-centric design were integral to this project. Where Community’s incumbent site had gradually developed a cluttered navigation, its replacement delivers clear, concise user journeys for a diverse range of audiences. These include existing and potential members, the media, Community workplace reps, and those who simply want information about their rights at work.
A prominent call to action to join the union features throughout the site’s navigation, as does a link to a new feature, the ‘Rep’s Toolkit’. This provides quick and easy access to resources that are central to a rep’s work, but may not be relevant to other audiences.
Community is a modern, inclusive and diverse independent trade union that represents members and their families from all industries and sectors within the UK economy. But it also has a long, proud history, with its roots in the steel and textiles communities. This, along with the union’s branding, helped inspire the site’s core colour palette and visual touches such as ‘stitching’ around navigation features.
Media Marketing and Campaigns Officer at Community, Paul Talbot, said: “We selected Redweb for the project only after a very competitive process had taken place. They worked closely with us at each stage of the development and we have been very satisfied with the way matters have been handled. Our new website has attracted very favourable comments and we are confident it will be of great assistance to us in the future in promoting Community’s aims and values to both members and non-members alike.”
Redweb CEO Andrew Henning added: “Community does vital work and we’re delighted to have delivered a device-agnostic, responsive site to do that work justice. Redweb has a proven history of success with not-for-profit organisations and trade unions, which we’ve once again put to good use with this design and build project.”

A man and his wife walked into a dentist's office.
The man said to the dentist, "Doc, I'm in one heck of a hurry. I have two buddies sitting out in my car waiting for us to go play golf, so forget about the anesthetic, I don't have time for the gums to get numb. I just want you to pull the tooth, and be done with it! [more…]
