The Brief

Shakti is Scotland’s leading black minority ethnic women’s aid organisation, offering help for BME women, children and young people who are experiencing, or who have experienced, domestic abuse. Their website was in need of re-development and they wanted to be able to manage the content themselves too.

What we did

We worked with Shakti through a number of workshops, to develop the site structure and content outline. We developed a new look for the responsive site and took that through a number of iterations. We user-tested the site, wrote new text and took new photographs, organised hosting and arranged for the domain name transfer. Finally, we provided training to key personnel in the use of the site.
