About This Project


Overcoming MS came to us with a dated site and a new strategy to help engage and better serve their visitors, members, and stakeholders.



With such a large site with housing so many useful tools, it was important for us not to lose sight of that, but instead we used what they had to further engage visitors. We worked closely with Overcoming MS and used their expertise to ensure we built products that would help them achieve their strategic goals.

Together we not only delivered a complete site rebuild, but also a bespoke content management system, and mobile apps for both iOS & Android.



Branding, Design & UX

Working closely with our web developer we came to understand the complexity of how the user can personalise their My OMS section and categorise his or her own content.

The user needed to be able to log in and save content to their own profile. This meant that accessibility and ease of use was paramount.

Universal icons were implemented to guide users through using the website, highlighting what they can and cannot save, remove, and send to other members.

The mobile app also required a great deal of planning, with many features required for inclusion to ensure it became a useful tool for the wider OMS community.



How did we build it?

The website was a large project involving many layers of forums, review processes, a member’s area, and a fully manageable suite of content.

The mobile products included location-based technology, instant messaging services, and dynamic content editable via the CMS.

Throughout this project we’ve used Objective C, Swift,  AFNetworking Library, Google Maps SDK, Google Messaging Service, APN, Java, MySQL, PHP, Laravel MVC Framework, JavaScript, and AngularJS.



Where are they now?

The new Overcoming MS site is now live, and the mobile apps are due to launch soon. They will be available on both Android & iOS.
