Making sure that your website will display correctly and elegantly across all sorts of devices is absolutely crucial. So responsive design is standard on our web projects, we generally go for a "mobile first" approach, starting off with a minimal arrangement of content for small screens and lower bandwidth devices, and elaborating the layouts, colour schemes, fonts and imagery for progressively larger sizes, ensuring compatibility across browsers amd operating systems.
We won the contract in 2013 to migrate Handicap International's online resource centre onto a new accessible platform. Asksource.info comprises a unique collection of information on disability and inclusion in development and humanitarian contexts aimed at practitioners and academics.
The collection contained over 8,000 items, including details of books, reports, websites, organisations, newsletters and pre-prepared key lists organised by topic area, and is the only such resource to reflect the experiences and priorities of practitioners in developing countries.
We began working with Right to Education team, based at Action Aid, in 2008. The original site was created as a home for the thinking of an educationalist called Tomascevski.
In 2013 The Right to Education team commissioned GreenNet to rebuild and redesign the site based on a simpler navigation with a single library to house all the resources. This new site is designed responsively and aims to feature new writings in the field and include success stories and guest blog posts.
The CLTS(Community Led Total Sanitation) project at IDS(Institute of Development Studies) has spent the last years in a small corner of the Livelihoods Connect website. As the project, its reputation and its reach have grown, calls have grown for it to have its own purpose built website where all its resources and news can be easily sorted and accessed. Because of time constraints we took a phased approach to the web development - beginning with a very simple site that would be ready in time for their annual international gathering.
