  4. To attract new members of Collaborate MK with clearly presented benefits.

Intuitive UI

It was important to design a UI that felt as natural as possible across all devices and enabled visitors to find the content they were looking for and make the call to action.

Dynamic Content

A carefully designed system was put in place to use images and text dynamically across the site, saving time by intelligently reusing assets.

Tailored Hosting

Based on the expectations of the site and projected visitor numbers, we put hosting in place the provides solid reliability and security.
