I was commissioned by the Association for Medical Humanities to fully redesign their website. The organisation is a learned body, running conferences about the meeting point of medicine and art. They were keen for their website to reflect the creative side of the organisation, as well as increase membership signups by creating an exclusive members area with extra content.

I used beautiful artwork by AMH’s own Deborah Padfield to build hero images, animated with a slow Ken Burns zoom effect. This evokes microbes on a slide, intended as a nod to the AMH’s medical interests.

I used a different piece of Padfield’s art for each section of the site, chopping up the image to produce placeholders for each blog category.

For static pages, I used sidebar menus and subtitles with deep red backgrounds. To my eye, these conjured up images of academic journals and papers.

I also added a membership plugin and payment buttons, to automate the AMH’s members system, and provided training to the whole team on how to update and maintain the site independently.

Association for Medical Humanities commissioned Joseph Woods to redesign, update and smarten their website. Our aim was to redevelop the usability and aesthetic both for members and the general public. Joe was incredibly professional throughout and a pleasure to work with, he listened to our brief very carefully and very quickly understood the ethos of the organisation and what we wished to achieve. Joe had exemplary timeliness and execution of the final product. For those of use who were less familiar with website design and etiquette he was very clear and provided a very useful 2 hour teaching session on how to maintain the website. We are very pleased with the finished product and would recommend Joe to any individual or organisation who requires a top class webpage design.
