Hampshire County Council SPARK Umbraco Web Design

The SPARK website has been created for Hampshire's children in care and care leavers. The SPARK website allows young people to find out what they can expect, are entitled to, and their rights whilst they are in the care of Hampshire. The SPARK website offers young people in Hampshire the opportunity to have their say about the care they receive, discuss issues with other young people in care and ask questions to those who make decisions about their lives.

We worked closely with the Hampshire County Council and SPARK team to help them move their web hosting over to Hotbox Studios. Following the web hosting transfer we worked with the Hampshire SPARK team to update the design of the website and add new functionality.

Creative and technical areas of the Hampshire SPARK website we've worked on include:

  • Animated homepage graphics using CSS sprites and jQuery.
  • New internal page template options allowing a much more flexible design.
  • Commenting with text and Emojis for logged in users.
  • Adding Google Translate to the website.
  • Improving the text search functions.
  • Adding the option for an alert banner at the top of pages.
  • Adding a scrolling news banner on homepage.
  • Styling updates to the website's layout and typography.
  • Updating the website's Umbraco CMS to the latest version allowing for improved formatting, layout and security.
  • Developing a Responsive Website Design for mobile users accessing the website via smartphones and tablets.
  • Updating the Members Overview, Homepage, and adding Google Translate options.
  • Updating the members comment functionality to make the chat features more intuitive.

We've also provided the Hampshire SPARK team with full Umbraco CMS and Contour training sessions.
