Virgin Group

Website

We’ve recently had the privilege of working with the Virgin Earth Challenge team on a new website for this hugely inspiring project. The Virgin Earth Challenge is a $25 million dollar prize for an economically sustainable way of removing carbon from the air. As people who are very concerned about the environment – this stuff really resonates.

We all know the issue of climate change is probably the most important thing facing us and our children today – but finding ways of persuading people to use less stuff is deeply challenging. Throwing new scientific methods at this problem is likely where the solution lies.

The site is a WordPress build and developed so it is responsive, able to deliver content to mobile, tablet or desktop. Under the hood we’ve got our modular content framework which allows content editors at Virgin to easily add new blocks of content, FAQ’s, grids of featured pages, or posts.

As with everything we do, our main focus is really two-fold: firstly, making sure the site is simple, navigable and attractive to people on the front-end, and secondly, reducing content editing time and effort so the site can remain up-to-date and topical with minimal effort required from in-house teams of already busy people.

Project type

They said...

When we wanted to make updates to our website we needed a web developer that would be able to take a complex, in-depth issue and present it in a fun, professional, coherent, comprehensive and  navigable way, and Thirty8 did not disappoint! It was an absolute pleasure dealing with the Thirty8 team. They were immediately responsive to any queries and their creativity and patience made working with them a real delight. If you are looking to create nice web content around your organisation and initiative then Thirty8 are a great partner. I would highly recommend them.

  • Half it in size. Then half it again.

    I’m sitting looking at my inbox. It’s a bit full – I’ve been away for a week. I’ve done a bunch of culling but in there are three newsletters catching my eye, all from museums or museum related people. Out of interest, I just pasted each one into http://wordcounttools.com. They average 1,400 words each. Here’s my mental […]

  • What do you need help with?

    Yesterday, we revamped and updated our resources section – these are free worksheets, guides and templates which are supposed to help organisations get a better handle on digital engagement. As I mentioned in that post, we’ve had 5,000 downloads of these resources, and we also get a lot of positive feedback about these at the workshops and […]
