Wooden Spoon - The New Website

At putitout we work across many different industries, which means getting our heads into a heap of different digital projects depending on our clients objectives.

One area, which we are consistently delivering in is the third sector. We are always excited about the charity work that we do and building a new website for a charity that helps children with disabilities play rugby is right up our street (mews). Especially as we’ve a handful of rugby enthusiasts in the office.

Having moved to agile last year this was one of the first projects that has come through our agile process and it has just gone live. 

We first pitched to redesign and build the Wooden Spoon website in August of 2013. Having gone through the tender and won in December we kicked off with our scoping phase – where we make sure that the business objectives are being reflected online. It was clear that a content strategy was something that would need careful consideration and once we had a clear direction in place we could understand exactly what user experience needed to be delivered. As with everything we do here the scoping phase defined the UX and the designs and would importantly allow Wooden Spoon to make changes as we developed.

Our man Bruce Waskett delivered the information architecture and Ross Gunter designed the site and new logo.

It then took 14 agile development sprints to deliver the website, which has gone through significant bug testing, and has been a great project to help us define how best to deliver agile projects.

The website is now live and is still going through changes as Wooden Spoon continue to raise money for their Arctic Rugby Challenge we will continue to support and update the website. Nothing in digital is complete and we will help Wooden Spoon to adapt to the live environment and new goals.
