Design, UX and web development is something Jadu do very well. In fact, the only thing we haven't done well is let the world know about it. So we've formed a new professional services agency called 'Spacecraft'.
Giving voice to Spacecraft and an identity to our design and professional services means a more streamlined and overarching view of our professional services so we're able to get better, smarter and offer more. To be creative and push the boundaries. We're passionate about good design and technology and achieving the right results.
Taking the guesswork out of design and making the design process as informed as possible creates great websites and user experience, which is good for business.
And that's what we are all about. Passionate about design, innovation and achieving the right results through good planning, hard work, honesty and experience.
From integrating with external technology, creating custom developments and interfacing with the Jadu CMS, our savvy developers solve the complex challenges.
Training & knowledge
We provide a range of training services helping you make the most from your Jadu CMS and keeping your people on top in the world of web based content and services.
Including content editor training, developer training and enhanced content workshops. If you're intrigued, email Paul Johnson our content specialist to find out how we can help.
New by Spacecraft - manchester.gov.uk
A responsive and user centred design, beautifully presented and utilising the Jadu platform like never before. Crafted mobile first and with data driven decisions, Jadu has worked closely with Manchester to produce something truly unique and that's destined to change the face of local government websites.
What we do
Taking the guesswork out of design and making the process as informed and intuitive as possible is our goal. Every project is different and each working relationship unique but certain common characteristics are found in all projects.
Planning and research
We need to understand your objectives, potential audience and other factors that help establish your vision. We can achieve this using the following techniques:
- Design questionnaire and feedback.
- Stakeholder workshops.
- Scenario development.
- Statistical analysis of site usage.
- Design goals documentation.
Getting the look and feel
We'll work with you to understand your target audience more and work with your corporate branding and objectives to determine the right path using the following tools:
- The creation of style tiles, to help develop a design direction.
- Reviewing established websites to inspire and inform a new look and feel.
- HTML mock-ups, so you can interact with a design, before development begins.
- Creating guides for making better landing pages.
Content hierarchy and layout
Separate to the look and feel, a good structure and layout is essential for a website. We can use the following techniques for achieving this:
- Wireframe design.
- Establishing content hierarchy.
- Wireframe prototypes.
- First click testing, getting quick user feedback.
- Sitemaps that display pages in a hierarchical tree.
- Tree testing, to evaluate the success of a sitemap.
Putting it all together
With Jadu as a platform, the ways you deliver content, supply services and goods will change and improve over time. Spacecraft are dedicated to designing and developing this for you with good planning, hard work and honesty.
